Through Project Quilting I won a Quilter's Planner and a Mini Planner! Thanks so much Stephanie from Quilter's Planner!
I received it in February, so I got a late start, but it didn't matter, as I was able to start right in and get super organized! I used to have a pile of notes on my desk and when I needed something I would dig through the papers to find something. As of mid February, I write everything in the planner. I am using the January pages for for extra notes and taping them onto the pages. I LOVE it! I will definitely purchase one for 2019, as after using it for less than a month, I can see it is going to be absolutely perfect for me!
When the Project Quilting Challenge - Stitch in Time was announced I knew exactly what I needed to make - A quilted holder for my Quilter's Planner. I saw the free pattern for the cover on their website, but I decided I need more than that. I wanted it to hold everything! I can take it with me downstairs to my quilting studio and bring it back upstairs at the end of the day. It needed to have a spot for markers, note pads, and post it notes to be all in one place.
I create in Boscobel, Wisconsin. I named my quilted holder -- A Time Keeper for Me! I LOVE it!
Here's the fabrics I selected for this challenge.
The lite blue hand dyed fabric is from Quilts by Barb. The dark blue is a printed fabric that a friend gave me. It was actually a few extra strips from a quilt she made last year. I doubled up on this challenge to make it for Project Quilting Challenge and for Quilt By Barb's - The Yard that Keeps on Giving Challenge.
I am linking up this post over at Persimons Dreams for Project Quilting.
I used my Denim Quilt Block Pattern to create my quilt.
It is available for only $1.00 on My Online Pattern Store.
I made my lattice strips skinny!
I did not use exact measurements and this is not really a tutorial, but I shared all the photos of the steps here.
I folded the fabric around the Quilter's Planner to figure out where to cut and stitch.
I cut and folded and stitched binding onto the fabric.
I will probably add a strap for carrying it like a bag, but I need to use it for awhile, before I can figure out where or if I want a strap on it.
I will share the how I made the phone purse in a couple days. It's fun and easy!
Thanks again to Project Quilting and the Quilter's Planner for the wonderful prize! Hop over and check out both websites!
Enjoy your day!
