Small quilting projects

Last week I received the Quilting Daily email, with a link to the 5 Small Quilting Projects from Quilting Arts. Just the sort of thing I felt like doing - small projects that can be finished in one evening, with scraps of my favourite fabrics. I started by making the Pencil Roll:

For the pencil pockets I used my own handdyed fabrics. Doesn't it look gorgeous!

Then I made the Magical Card case, with a piece of painted and stamped fabric.

When you pull the ribbon, the business cards pop up! Too cool.

And finally I made a Luggage Tag - something I have been wanting to make since our trip to the Netherlands in June. I'll have one now when we fly to Melbourne in January!

DH liked it so much that he asked me to make one for him as well, in a more masculine fabric. I offered him a tractor fabric but that wasn't wat he had in mind! Haha. I probably have some sailing boat fabric scraps somewhere...

Love the pencil holder and want now to make that for my grandkids with teh matching colored pencils. They will love it. Maybe a velcro tie for them. Sweet.

am off to the post office to mail off art for the international art exchange.

I caught this through your comment on the site. Thanks so much for sharing your work! I shared your blog post with the folks here at Quilting Arts and it gave everyone a smile (we especially love your pencil role). Well done!
