This, That, and the Other...

Future Project No 1 - a Sloan or a Tudor.  Bought straps at Crimson Tate and the zipper in Morocco.  Art Gallery Fabric by Leah Duncan. 

Future Project #2 - Quilties Holly and Sarah S went to QuiltCon in Savannah and shopped for me.  These two fabrics are some of the things they came come with.  Straps again from Crimson Tate and zipper - yes, Morocco. 

Future Project #3 - This fabric is what the quilties shopped for at QuiltCon in Sacramento last year.  At Crimson Tate I found this great strapping for the handles and a great zipper.

Putting away scraps is always an issue.  And sometimes I get distracted.  These two zippers found their way out of the zipper box and attached themselves to some of my favorite leftovers.   My buddy Cathy and granddaughter Nikki have these.  

Below is a pencil case and a modification (the taller one) by Anna Graham of Noodlehead.  This pattern is a free tutorial from her.  If you've been wanting to try a zippered pouch or pencil case, her tutorials are excellent - great directions and pictures.  Do you have zipper fear?  She'll help you get over it!

This is the backing for this quilt - I'm determined to get this finished.  Today.  Before I play.

Things I want to play with - part 1

Things I want to play with - Part 2

Things I want to play with - Part 3.  These fabrics are all from Quilty Mimi, and I think they might be a quilt for my college roommate Dodie's son Paul and his wife Susie.  She has said black and white, but I think the Asianness of these fabrics appeal to her.  To be figured out...
Every year I give my buddy Carol something for the Silent Auction which funds the Morgan Park Youth Center.  This year she is requesting a wall hanging of this house, which is the actual youth center.  So before any playing with purses and after finishing getting the one quilt together, I will work on this!

The zipper in the first picture looked like a magician's wand to me-ha ha! Miss you, Donna!
