I broke down and bought the One Yard Wonders book. Oh, how I love it! So many gorgeous projects all using no more than 1 yard of fabric! What a great concept! The only problem is that it is not very often that I buy fabric by the yard. Since I’m mostly quilting these days, I usually buy fat quarters or half yard cuts. But, I’m finding that many of these projects actually take much less than a yard. I made this Jewelry Roll as a Christmas present for my auntie using just 2 fat quarters…genius! The outer fabric is Heather Bailey’s Nicey Jane line and the lining is a cute yellow linen a bought as a remnant.
The ribbon tied placket is where you can string your rings or pierce your earrings through. This pattern had a great method for applying the zippers which ends up looking very nice. I almost always have a hard time with zippers, but not this time!
My last two big presents (quilts!) were gifted this past week on my trip to California, so I will finally be able to post pictures. I’m so happy with how they turned out and I can’t wait to show them to you!!
