2003 Five Years and Counting (or Drawing as the case may be)

Marny here....Year five we returned to bag making.  Jill opened her stash to the group and the fabric started flying.  Everyone needed two fabrics, and the choices were endless.  Once that all important step was conquered we cut, folded, pressed and threaded the cording and magically the bags appeared one by one.

This little sack like bag is called Drawstring Bag with Interior Pockets.  It was one of my first attempts at pattern writing.  See the very fine illustrations? :-)

It was a happy little project requiring little time and only two squares of fabric, add a little ribbon, and you were good to go.  Jill and I demonstrated it countless times.  We even taught it to an audience at a large quilt show in Central Iowa. 

The Jill and Marny quilting partnership was starting to take shape.  Who knew then how far it would go?

see you tomorrow....
