When I trimmed the Patches quilt before binding it, I had a nice strip of this quilted blue area left. AHA moment.... use it make the needle case! The hard part was already done. I just trimmed it, sewed on some leftover binding (also from the Patches quilt), and stitch in a couple of pieces of wool. Voila! My needles are very happy!
I just found out yesterday that our Guild's entry to the AQS Ultimate Guild Challenge has been accepted! Remember the round quilt challenge I coordinated? So eight quilts from our Guild will be hanging at he AQS Knoxville Show in August. Yay us!
