I had to ask for a gift back. This.
Because I entered it in a quilt show.
And as I found out, when you enter a project in a quilt show, there are submission guidelines as to how it's supposed to be presented. Like a label. Still have to do that. Like a way to hang it. Thank goodness this is a mini quilt, and L sewed two little rings to the back when she received it from me.
But it also needed a presentation bag. Yes, a pillowcase would be acceptable, but it would be TOO big. Plus, I wanted to surprise L as I'd had to ask for her gift back.
And I knew EXACTLY what bag I wanted to make. This one. My favorite. It's SO easy because Jeni's instructions are clear and precise. Besides, I've made a gazillion of them now. That's how much I love it.
But this bag had to be special. I knew I was going to make improv wonky stars and I knew I had more than enough Halloween scraps. I knew, because this is for my besty after all, that I was going to use black and gray, and that kitty-with-the glowing-eyes print.
Well, I can't keep surprises. As soon as I this little wonky star block came together, I took a quick picture with the iPhone and sent it to her.
So here it is. Front.
And the back.
Together. All ready for the show.
I really can't keep a surprise.
