The angled inset at the center of the bag is just cool, cool, cool. And easy, too. It offers the opportunity for an extra deep outside pocket, perfect for keys, phone or other small items. And goodness, there’s a pocket on the other side, too. Nice!

Fancywork & Fashion

I met Joan Hinds at Houston Quilt Market, 2007, and she impressed me so much for her creativity and professionalism. From her website Fancywork and Fashion, her newest pattern: Playfully Petite Fashions

Dress your dolls in the latest fashions on the market with this pattern for five mix-and-match garments. Each garment, including a Cross-over Bodice Dress, Skirt, Flared Top, Jeans, and a Baby Doll Top, was created to showcase doll-sized embroidery. Twelve machine embroidery designs, featuring Flowers, Hearts, and Butterflies, are found on the accompanying CD.

Formats included are ART, DST, EXP, HUS, JEF, PCS, PES, SEW, VIP/VP3, XXX.

Check out her patterns (with CD’s!) and her books for creative inspiration.

Bargello and More……

Ann Lainhart’s quilts are quite lovely, particularly her bargello quilts, like the one on the left, called Stacked Tops and the one below called Midnight Cityscape. Check out her website – called The Quilted Gallery – for interesting patterns in quilts and wearables.
