It’s in the Bag blog hop and Put your foot down

It’s in the bag blog hop with Island Batik is in its 3rd week Welcome to my stop during the Island Batik blog hop featuring patterns ByAnnie. ByAnnie has been an industry partner for 3 years and are so generous to the IB Ambassadors. Each year we are allowed to choose the bag pattern we make and ByAnnie sends everything we need to complete the challenge.

is the November Island Batik Challenge. For this challenge I chose Room With A View from byannie, the large bag which is a 12.5″ cube. I wondered if it would fit in my cubes from Ikea when I chose it, in the Add On video for the bag Annie does say they fit. Yay!

About Me!

Thank you for dropping by. For more than half of my life I’ve been trying to recreate the feeling I felt sleeping under a quilt my grandmother made. That quilt, along with everything around me inspires my creativity, though the finish rarely resembles the inspiration. What inspires me always morphs into something different.
I’m a self taught quilter, a pattern designer and revels on pushing the boundaries of my ability and creativity. My patterns have been published in Annie’s Catalog as well as Island Batik fabric catalogs.
My husband of 31 years and I enjoy the solitude of living high above the Mississippi River and the nature around us.
