Next on the to-do list....

Now that the paper, cutters, adhesive and photos have been put away, I have cleaned off my cutting table and I'm ready to sew. Now I am working on quilted agenda covers! I made a quilted cover for my day-timer/agenda a few years ago (using Laurel Burch fabric) and EVERYWHERE I go people comment on it. So I decided to get a few of the purse size agendas and try to make covers for them for the studio tour. I don't want to put binding on them at the end (takes WAY too much time), so I'm trying to figure out how to assemble them without binding. I'm going to use some of my batik scraps left over from other projects. I think they'll look really cute when they're finished.

I remember that agenda cover- it's gorgeous! What a great idea to make to sell before Christmas! Did you consider doing them sort of like a pillowcase idea instead of using binding? I have done it once for a table topper and just last night at quilt guild, the featured quilter (Denise Labadie) does that too- at least all of the samples she brought were like that. And it looks very nice. Just a thought.

Hi Christa!!
That's exactly what I ended up doing and they turned out really great. And way faster too.
How are you doing? Are you ever going to come back for a vist?
