    to carry quilt blocks

    We had a guest at our quilting group the other day. She had the most beautiful carrier for her blocks in progress. She said that the Celtic front was gifted to her and she then appliqued it to fabric that she then wrapped around two pieces of foam board. She then put a tie on the two front edges to keep it closed. She is working on The Gatsby Girls redwork blocks [pattern here http://www.nanasneedlework.com/shop/Patterns/p/Gatsby-Girls-sku-NN406.htm ] Her work is excellent.

    She had a great idea and one that we all can use...I know I am going to use this idea within the next week for all the blocks I must carry to my weekly quilting group...finally a great and simple answer as to what to do so the blocks with not get wrinkled or even lost. Thank you for sharing the info.

    Oma66 when you make your carrier might you be able to post photos. Simple mind here cannot understand that idea.

    I used to have one and found it great for finished larger blocks, but smaller pieces or smaller blocks sometimes managed to escape on me. I like the idea of a zippered one but I know it would take alot longer to make.

    What a gorgeous design she used. And thanks for sharing this idea for carrying work. I may have to try this one with one of my orphan blocks.

    Clever idea! Just watch some one will sell the idea and make a fortune. On your mark, get set...... go! Nah, you go for it, I am too busy quilting.

    I would be afraid to carry something that pretty in my car. I'm sure someone would spill something on it
