QUILT SHOW BOUTIQUES

This past week I attended a quilt show boutique workshop for my upcoming guild's quilt show in January 2021.  They are always fun and you learn a few hints and tips along the way.  This particular workshop was for making zippy bags and boxes.  As I have made some of these type items myself I though it would be fun.  
These are the finishes for the day.  About 10 of us showed up and accomplished these 12 bags and 1 box.  I was able to finish up 2 of them, but I had taken fabric and supplies to make a total of 5.  So once home I had homework to do.
So here are my other three.  I decided to try the zipper boxes and they are so fun.  Very useful for all sorts of storage and take along items.  
I finished up this folio for myself this week.  I may end up teaching some of these in boutique workshops later this year.  Right now I am using them and really find them useful.  
I love using some of the fat quarter prints that come to me from my  Quilty Box monthly subscription.  Such pretty coordinating prints to work with.  
And again for you peacock fans.  Two of my daughter's male baby peacocks with their baby lady friend.  They like to lay in the garden's ground cover just beyond the patio.  But if they hear a noise they peek out.  The silly little only female she has out of the 5  is sure bold and makes all the noise.  Ear slitting screams, best property protector, she lets you know if anyone is coming for sure.

  1. Your bags and boxes look very cute. Peacock as watch animal? Who would have guessed! The boys sure look beautiful in their royal blue plumage.

  2. Hi Donnalee! HAHA - I do enjoy the peacock updates. They look like they are little busybodies - peeking out of the ground cover whenever there is a noise. I would definitely buy one of your pouches if I were attending your guild shop in January. In fact, Sue is struggling to find just the perfect bag to use for school. Why on earth haven't we just figured out exactly what she needs and make it ourself?! Geez. I'm going to send her your website link for plant the seed of an idea. You just watch, it'll be on my to-do list very soon . . . Thanks for linking up today. ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Quilted (or quilt fabric) bags and organizers are always such fun to make, have and use! Should sell well in the boutique and get a good response offered as a class.

  9. Your pouches are just great! I'd like to try making a square pouch like the ones you're showing. Those peacocks look like they have quite the personality!
