Asian-Inspired Log Cabin Zipper Bag

JoAnn's New Quilt Fabric Department!

If you haven't dropped into your local JoAnn store in the past few weeks, expect a most pleasant surprise. They are moving in quilting fabric by the truck load! The stores will be carrying 1091 quilt fabrics when the shelves are finally full, but the first wave of these gorgeous new fabrics already whet this quilter's appetite. I was looking for some special fabric for a gift project, and knew it when I saw it.

Copyright Laws for Fabric and Selling Quilts

How fabulous are these prints? 
I bought them at JoAnn's. 

One of my online friends commented she was glad to see I also bought fabric there. When I did more home dec and garment sewing, it was my main source, but quilting fabrics are different. I buy quilting fabrics at my LQS or online, but I do use my local JoAnn's for many other items. They are gracious to offer space for our sewing group, and I am grateful for that. They're also a pretty nice group of folks that work there, and I support the store to keep it open. For the longest time I refused to buy fabric there for two specific reasons. One, the quality fluctuated from quite decent to poor.

Falling Star Pillow Finish

Do you remember this Falling Star block I was 
working with a few weeks ago?
I thought it would make a quick practice piece for FMQ,
 and decided I should turn it into a mod pillow.
I inserted a covered zipper in the back to make it washable.
The black and white hatched fabric
is from JoAnn's, and teams nicely with everything.

How to Put a Sleeve on a Wall Hanging-a Better Way!

Have you ever seen a wall hanging that was 
absolutely stunning, except for how the dowel created 
curvey bump in the top?

I have, and it just made me cringe.
Your eye goes toward any change in the plane.
The Devil's in the details, folks! 
Don't slap the last bit together
just to say, "I'm Done!"
We're ALL guilty at some point.

Flash In the Bag

The promised camera bag.
