Sandy P's Travel Duffle Bags

Here is a picture sent to us from Sandy P.

She says:
"Just wanted to share with you a photo of a couple of duffle bags that were done this past weekend. My friend, Pat Harris, and I were at our annual quilting retreat and instead of a quilt, we did your duffle bag. We enjoyed working together on this and your pattern and instructions were easy to follow. We did go on-line to view zipper installation, once we got it - away we went. A lot of compliments were given to us. In fact, Pat started working on another duffle bag for her daughter.
Thanks for great patterns and of course the Soft and Stable which is awesome for such bags."

Beautiful bags! What a fun project for a quilt retreat. Thanks for sharing.

Congratulations to Brenda Barr for winning the iCases pattern and finishing kit for the small iCase. Brenda, please contact me with your address and we'll get it in the mail to you along with a beautiful HOT RED zipper! Great choice. Thanks to all who responded. Happy stitching! Classes at Quilt St. George start tomorrow! I'm loading the car with all my stuff for classes, my trunk show, and Meet the Teachers. Can someone tell me how I can get about 1,000 more hours in a day??

Quilt St. George Retreat is next week!

I am delighted to be a stop on the Quilt St. George Blog Hop and am looking forward to teaching at the first annual Quilt St. George Retreat to be held next week in beautiful St. George, Utah.

In addition to teaching four half-day Electric Quilt software classes and an all-day class based on my new iCases pattern, I will also be presenting a lecture showcasing the fun of Texture Magic. For more info about the retreat, please visit the Quilt St. George Retreat website.

As part of the Quilt St. George Blog Hop, one lucky stitcher can win an iCases pattern and finishing kit to make a small iCase (perfect to hold an iPad Mini, Kindle or other e-reader). Simply like my Facebook page between now and January 10th and leave a comment about what color of zipper you would like in your kit. You'll find a complete list of available colors at my website. I will select a winner randomly and notify them on January 11th.
