Registrations are open for Lizzy Houses’s Down Under Meadow Tour! I could not be more excited! I was so disappointed when I missed out on Lizzy’s Meadow Class at Quiltcon, I can hardly believe that she’s coming to New Zealand! If you’re interested in taking a workshop while she’s visiting Down Under make sure you hurry over to Adrianne’s blog for more details.
The New Zealand class may not be until October but I’ve already made a bag to carry my fabric. It helped that a while back I did some pattern testing for Svetlana from Sotak Handmade (pattern testing is always a good way for me to actually finish something!!). The pattern was the Ella Bucket Bag. I had started choosing fabrics when I realised that it would be the perfect bag to take to the Meadow class so from that point on I gave myself permission to use some of my treasured Lizzy House fabric, even the pocket linings got the Lizzy House treatment. This is an in progress photo of the lining…
The main panels are a Robert Kaufman quilter’s linen in denim, everything else is from Lizzy House. Hidden under those butterflies is the exterior pocket with a zipper closure.
It turns out it’s the perfect size for my Lizzy House stash! With a little spare room for the additions I’ve made to my stash since this photo was taken.
