The Applique Bee met Tuesday at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above is the new “Sew Together” pouch that Judi A. made.
This is a close look at the inside.  Don’t you just love all those pockets and zippers!  What a darling pouch!
Cathy M. was sewing bindings on her placemats.  I think I previously showed you the little cathedral window blocks she was making.  She sewed them together, added a piece of rickrack and, poof, she has an adorable placemat.
This is a close up of one with the finished binding.  Wouldn’t this make a great scrappy project! You can see more of Cathy's place mats by going to the Grand Rapids Modern Quilters blog here.

Until next time,

Stay Calm! Stay Kind! Stay Positive!

The placemats are beautiful but the first thought after "how pretty" was "oh, man, spaghetti sauce and red wine" all over that white!

You know how I love that bag. She used such cute fabric! I thought the same thing as Denice about stains on the placemats. However then I thought, heck, she could just appliqué something over any stubborn stains if they bothered her. In any case, they are lovely.

What gorgeous placemats - and I love the bag, although I'd probably never make it!

I love Sew Together bags. They are addicting!
