Don’t you just love those ah-ha! moments? I’ve been working on rosette number two from the New Hexagon Millefiore Quilt-Along. And I have bits and bobs spread all over the table next to my chair. Time to rein in my mess.
This is the Bionic Gear Bag Notions Tote, by RipStitcher. The pattern is here on Craftsy: http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/sewing/accessory/winner-bionic-gear-bag-notions-tote/93596
This has enough zipper compartments to make me do a happy dance! And I got to install four zippers! A place for everything, and everything in its’ place.
Can’t do EPP without my trusty 3M blue painters tape. And massive spools of gray thread. Here’s a small preview of some of the fabrics in my second rosette:
I may start putting this together by machine. I am very pleased with how my first rosette turned out, using invisible thread and a zig-zag stitch. If you haven’t checked out my tutorial, you can find all three parts here on my blog. https://handmadebycarolecarr.com/2015/01/23/machine-stitching-the-millefiore-quilt-tutorial-part-one-for-those-of-us-who-hand-sew-at-the-speed-of-a-turtle/

My wonderful Destiny is still in the shop. You will never believe what I ended up doing all day yesterday. Just try to guess.
Stay crafty, my friends.
