Finish Friday...the Fabric Bowl

At our last Maritime Modern Quilt Guild meeting, Jo over at Explorations in Stitch did a demo on making fabric bowls.  So I decided to give it a try.  Those who know me, know I don't do well without a pattern.  But I decided to give it a try anyway from memory.

I decided to stay small for my first attempt, and I am pleased with the finished product.  The sides are a little more angled out than I had planned.  I was so focused on ensuring I was sewing it so that the thread was catching both pieces of the cord that I often forgot to keep the bowl angled up.  Oh well...I'm still pleased with my first attempt.

I will use it tomorrow as a thread catcher at MMQG's Sew In.

Since I enjoyed making this, I will investigate a book purchase so I can learn more.

Since it's Friday, I'm linking up with TGIFF.  Leanne @ the Devoted Quilter is hosting this week.

Off to find a project to work on tomorrow at the Sew In.


  1. Fabulous! I am so doing this. Maybe pick up some cord tomorrow :)

  2. Looks great to do this without a pattern! See you tomorrow.

  3. It collected my thread and other bits very well. ;-)

  4. It looks great! I've never tried making a fabric bowl, but they sure are pretty. Another project on my 'someday' list...BTW, I grew up in Upper Tantallon. Thanks for linking to TGIFF.

  5. You're such a keener! Everyone was jealous of your bowl at Sew In! :)

  6. Very nice. Looks like i missed a great demo. Your bowl it lovely.
