Welcome to this week's edition of Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday. TGIFF is the opportunity to share your finish from this week. You can find out who is hosting each week by heading over to the TGIFF blog. If you are interested in hosting, the 2023 schedule has been posted.
I attended Sewtopia Palm Springs the first week of November. Quilting retreats are a great opportunity to sew and socialize with like-minded quilters. This was the third Sewtopia that Dena and I attended.
There is an official secret swap -- bring an item, get one. But there is also the super secret swap organized by Rhiannon. You are assigned a secret partner, and you gift several items over three days.
Here are the items I made for my partner. Each bag had some goodies such as chocolate and sewing notions.
My partner shared photos of items that she liked. I couldn't find a pattern, but I managed to draw a paper pieced pattern for this cassette tape zippered pouch.
Sew Together Bag...oh my...this is the third one I've made, but I still struggle with both the pattern and the sewing. Here's the tutorial I follow -- without it, I don't think I'd ever get the bag finished.
My partner said she liked Alison Glass prints, so I used a lot of different prints, which makes for a colourful bag.
It's time to link up your finishes from this week. Please visit a few of the link ups to get some inspiration and to share some quilty love.
