April Quilt Groupbees

At my local quilt group (we’re the Quilt Groupbees), there is just a small group of us, and for April we decided to sew up a little bag. 

Everyone just loves this bag my sister made for me:


(I added the flower.)  I keep my sewing goodies in there. And have gotten lots of compliments on it.

So when the Moda Bake Shop had a little bag featured, I thought that would be a good project for our little quilt group.

It’s not quite as cute as the bag my sister made for me…such cute fabric and shape.  But I thought this option would be good for the beginners in our group.


I did all the prep work ahead of time so that we could just sew…sew….sew.

It took the whole time…and we even went a bit over…but almost everyone was able to finish their bag and I think they were happy with the results.

My camera battery died, but I did snap a couple shots that night of the ladies busily sewing away:IMG_0172IMG_0173

Let’s see, we’ve done table runners, and a little bag, what are some other ideas for small quilt projects we can do in an evening or two?  Maybe a pillow!

It was a perfect little project! Thanks so much for all your hard work in getting it ready for us. I love mine and I put some of my cardmaking stuff in it to take to the stamp workshop. It worked perfectly but I also like the idea of putting my sewing stuff in there as well!

Too cute! I love both bags and it sounds like your class went well. What a great teacher to be so well prepared. A pillow sounds great to me!
