Thank you Rosemary & Marian for your suggestions,

I think we all explore outside the square when it comes to saving money!

Just working on a new bag design and try to use as many alternative products as possible.

Curious question. Is there a firm bag wadding readily available in UK quilting shops? We have a product called Matilda's own. It's reasonably priced and easy to work with

I have Used the foam wadding but find it's quite expensive.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Sheila but have "Met" her on the forum. Condolences to her family and especially to you Rosemary. It's always sad when a friend leaves you , even more so when it's a quilting friend.

Hi Rosemary,

My calendar arrived yesterday and it's great! You have done such a good job. Some lovely quilts in there, they are a credit to all.

Thank you for taking the time and trouble to do this for us.

I will post my blocks tomorrow Rosemary. Been to yet another funeral today....a quilting friend of more than 20 years. She lived just long enough to hold her great grandson! Had a lovely quilt over her coffin.

Lovely blocks Rosemary. You must be a "blue" person.

I went to a guild workshop last week. It was panel play and we made a wall hanging from a commercial panel, Very relaxing, just straight cutting and sewing.

I also did some fiddling about making small gifts for friends and fairs. This lot was made from just three fat quarters.,

Beginning top left there are a pair of coasters, spring top bag for shopping bags, Manicure purse, Travel purse and tissue holder.

Glad summer is on the way, winter has been long and cold!

I don't know if you noticed but the web address has changed to I think it's probably diverted from the original PP site and it has upset the log in process.

I had to log in and fortunately it accepted my password. No doubt they will sort it out

Rosemary I think this project is a great idea and perfect for all skill levels.

Well I made a start!

Without giving too much away I realized that there is a gap in my experience as a quilter and I looked at this as a personal challenge. Let me say that the blocks are not difficult, I would hate to discourage anyone from joining in because there's so much diversity from very simple to ambitious! I have made two blocks so far and I am happy with them but today I thought I would be a smarty pants and be ambitious. I well and truly landed on my backside with my block ending up in the bin. I was in the sewing room all by myself and finished up laughing my socks off. It has done me a world of good because I now have a better understanding of how first time patch workers must feel when they get stuck. and frustrated, even the most experienced of us can hit the wall at times.

Going to a quilters Spring gathering tomorrow . Helen Godden is our speaker and will share some of her work with us.

That's lovely Irene, such a special gift.

I have been making bags (again). I designed this one for one of our guild workshops. It's made from four long quarters plus wadding and liningt.

Thank you for the photos Rosemary. I would love to have been there to see them for myself.

Good luck with your SM hunting. Back in 2016 I was fortunate enough to win a Janome Atelier 3 for my PP challenge quilt. I must say that I have been impressed with it's performance and tend to use it just as much as my Bernina. It has a slightly wider throat space than normal and has done everything I have asked it to do. They cost around 800 pounds but some shops do discount a little.

Hope this helps.
