Your pillow cases are gorgeous--thanks for the link!

I'm going to try making one of the Bow Tucks bags for my mom for her birthday. Do they go together pretty easily???

Great job Cordelia, but then again, I would expect nothing less from you. Just look at that medallion you made for the Round Robin!
One question for you....where did you get the pattern for the bags you make. Was it a purchased pattern, online, store, made up in your head?
I would love to TRY to make something like that for my girls.

Cordelia...what a nice job and this is really cleaver to make all those fancy pillow cases...Thanks for the link....I never fold my quilts I just shove them in a pillow case...seen the gals on Fons and Porter do this so I don't have fold marks in my quilts...and they don't wear out cause you never put them in the pillow case the same way twice....so that is what I plan to do...make some of these nice pillow cases for my quilts...possibly to match if I have extra fabric...clever!!! Woooo hoooo!!

Teri, the bow tucks bag pattern can be purchased at Quiltsillustrated.com. So can the charm city tote.

Cathy, I've got my quilts folded in bags. But, just rumple them up in a ball and put in a bag you say?

I think I'll do that. I'm sure to have fold marks by now. When I finish my projects, if they don't go to family, they get "stored."

I haven't seen some of my quilts in over a year.

Cordelia, I love your pillow cases. The Hoffman challenge fabric is exquisite! What a great idea, you've got me thinking of Christmas gifts!

Christmas gifts are basically what they are, to be honest.

Cordelia - thanks so much for the idea about the pillow cases - I think I like gcathie's added idea too - as I hate to fold the quilts and make the marks - love the pillow case to match plan.

Harmony, I cut out the bow tucks bag last night. This will be the 3rd project, but all are using the same techniques. I found the quilting portion time consuming, but that's due to my limited experience. Personally, I think the pattern is a breeze and the results are tops.

Good luck and have fun!

Piecefully yours,
Kay Susan

p.s. Isn't it neat that we can share because Cordelia shared with us????
