Quality Sewing had their monthly “Sew Fun” infomercial program today. I enjoy going because quite often I get ideas. And sometimes I humor them by buying something, or is it that they have something that really captivates my interest?
Today’s program included a “Basket Magic” pattern which was interesting in that it is somewhat rigid, but sports a tie at each end so it can be stored flat. The pattern has both oblong and round shapes.
These were samples made from a book called “City Blocks” by Nancy Rink. It has patterns for 10 easy quilts both blocks and applique` I’m not sure the size of the quilts in the book, but the ones on display were about 45″ quilts.
The Zinnia Clutch Bag from Susa Glenn was a nice size for keeping essentials. It had two larger pockets and 4 mini pockets. This pattern includes patterns for eye glasses, a card case, and a checkbook holder. It majors in machine embroidery, with minimal sewing machine work.
Islander Sewing Systems sported a terrific looking “Jacket Express” pattern. I really liked this one. It’s a blue jean jacket, but the samples were not done in denim. This company has a lot of commercial experience, so the instructions for putting the jacket together are more like a commercial one would be sewn.
