Handcrafted Projects and Quilt Market

Hi friends! Fall quilt market starts next week and today I wanted to share some of the projects that I created using the Alison Glass Handcrafted line for Andover. Alison was nice enough to send me a fat quarter set of these fabrics and I had so much fun literally using every last scrap to make the following projects.

The first project I have is a fun pillow combining Handcrafted and Alison's new wool collection with Weeks Dye Works. I cut the wool hexies using my Sizzix Big Shot machine and 1/2" hexagon die.

I did a straight line stitch in coordinating Auriful thread that is also part of Alison's collection. It was fun to leave a little more negative space on part of the pillow, I think it gives it a unique look.

Next up are some fun zipper pouches I created using the AG Handcrafted line and Weeks Dye Works wool in the herringbone pattern.

The first pouch is large enough to make a fun clutch purse. This was created using my Sizzix Big Shot machine and Bigz XL Diamonds 5" Die. This die is traditionally used for quilting but I thought that it would be fun to make a quilted pouch with this and the size of the diamond pattern was a perfect fit. This was also quilted with coordinating Aurifil thread from Alison's line.

This is a fold-over style pouch using one of my favorites - the flying geese pattern.

Below is a sneak peek of a new quilt that I am making called "Read between the lines" This will showcase the AG Handcrafted line against Alison's text print in black and white. The final quilt will be a surprise for the show, so I will share pics later after market.
