NEW Project for Retreat & Supply List


Since the mystery quilt is going to make up so fast, we thought we would add another project to the line-up.  We will be doing Pocket Full of Rulers by Bella Nonna.  You are just going to love this bag for taking your mat and rulers to retreats!  We saw this bag made up in Arizona and fell in love with it.  We have an extra special way to make it and we think you are going to like it.  It not only has lots of pockets for rulers on the outside, it has many pockets for all of your gadgets on the inside.  Here is the supply list and yes, we will have starter kits with the strips (of batiks like ours which is blues, greens and purples) available and also the notions needed.  We will also have bolts of fabric available to choose the accent pieces.  The bag finishes 21" X 26".

You will need:
Fabric Strips for Bag - 30 strips, widths from 1 1/2" to 3 1/2" X 22 - (our kit will have 15 strips 3 1/2" X WOF)
Pockets - front outside - (3) 1/4 yd. pieces
Lining -bag and inside pockets - 1 2/3 yd.
Permanent Press Muslin - 3/4 yd.
1" Webbing - 4 yards
Decor Bond - 2 yds.
