As promised I have an update from our last PMQG meeting which included a potluck and the Give and Get swap. I was excited about the exchange and was hoping my recipient would like her gift. After checking out her blog I decided to make her a quilted circular knitting needle holder as she is a big knitter as well as a quilter.
The tie I was planning on making didn't work out but I love my last minute fix. I used 1/4" elastic and sewed a square where the ends connected.
The whole piece measures 15 1/2 X 9 1/2" each section is a little mini quilt.
Inside are three pockets for needles and a little pocket for scissors.
Please be kind on my free-motion quilting, I am very rusty but the stretch sateen would have shown too much if I tried to rip it out.
Stay tuned for the amazing gift I received. I have to do it justice with a good photo.
p.s. if you want to see more from our swap check it out here we have quite a creative group.
