I’ve started another project

Yesterday, in class, some of the students, including myself, opted to learn some new skills by making a strip bag.

Some people used part of a jelly roll, some students shared a jelly roll; I cut my own strips from my ever-growing stash (and to think that just twelve months ago my stash consisted of ten fat quarters!)
Jelly Strings bag fabrics
In class we had to choose six strips for the front and the back of the bag, and another four strips for the sides. By the end of the class, I had this:

Now I just have to make another matching piece.

I’m looking forward to the next class when there will be pockets and interfacing and possibly even quilting!


  1. What a great idea! Looking forward to seeing the finished thing :)

  2. Very nice class-I like the colors you chose, too.

  3. What a runway to put your stash to work.
