Mini Blog Hop featuring the Madeline Collection by Blank Quilting

5.13.2013

My friend Debby@Debby Kratovil Quilts contacted Linda@Buzzing and Bumbling and me with a challenge using Blank Quilting's Madeline collection. We decided to make it a mini blog hop, so make sure you go check out their blogs to see what they created using this fun fabric.

*hint* There is a giveaway involved at Debby's blog. =)

The colors of Madeline just scream summer with the bright colors of purple, orange, teal, green and yellow. Summer around here means weekend trips and day rides on our Goldwing, so the fabric was begging to be made into pouches and bags for me to use on our trips. I don't always like to take my purse with me, but I still need necessities like chap stick, a comb, sunscreen and things along those lines.



For the larger items I need to carry with  me, I made a drawstring bag using Jeni@In Color Order's tutorial. For the smaller items I used Debbie@A Quilter's Table tutorial she shared of her triple zip pouch. It's the perfect size to hold my packets of drink mixes, chap stick, loose change and it fits all nice and tidy inside the drawstring bag. 

I think they turned out darling....


Make sure you check out Blank Quilting's Facebook page to see what people are creating with their lovely fabric. =)

  19. Amy. These are so clever but what I love the most is that photograph with those purple flowers. You couldn't have asked for a better backdrop! The bags are super - I admire anyone who does things other than quilts. I guess I'm a one-track hamster on a continuous wheel!
