I have had a lot of fun knitting the purses. I use Batik to cut my strips out of on the bias. Batiks are good because they look good on both sides. Kona cotton would look good also. I will take a photo today and post it.

Mary, what a great idea! l have a few fabrics in my stach that will never end up in my quilts...just not my style...but knitted 1/2" stips of them knitted would just show color, & not "pattern". Will you post some photos please?

Hello

I just joined:) What a fun website. I have been having a lot of fun lately knitting purse out of 1/2 inch strips of batik fabric. They turn out so nice and of course wonderful color.

Mandy, i don't make a lot of money, but it is nice to get a little extra and i feel blessed every time i get an order. i am especially grateful when it happens around the holidays.

Riana, a hopechest of projects for retirement is such a good idea. Good luck with your orders Suzann, you ladies in America are so lucky to have a thriving quilt industry to actually make money from something you love. Good for you.

Riana, in addition to the recent quilt orders i have three gift quilts to do. but, i do not make traditional quilts, so it is not the same as someone making a double wedding ring or the like. six of the eight quilts are memory quilts and three of those six are t-shirt quilts, so not as hard and take a bit less time. other two are my variation of strip-quilting quilt as you go. sorta patchwork meets crazy quilting with my own spin on top. so, i can probably get them all done on time.
i need to have a wedding gift by the end of sep. it is half done. then, i need another wedding gift by the end of nov. and, two t-shirt quilts by Xmas. then, if there is any extra time, i will try to get the third t-shirt quilt before Xmas. the final three memory quilts are due by early spring, sometime mid mar to first part of apr. so, deadlines, but probably not too strenuous ... assuming all goes well with the quilts and nothing disastrous happens elsewhere in my life. ;-)

Oh my, 5 quilts...are there deadlines involved? 

Comment by Suzann Darnall on September 10, 2013 at 8:19am
i am blessed to be a stay-home wife, so more time ... sometimes ... for quilting and crochet. of course, now that one daughter and two grandkids have had to move in with us, both time and money a little less available, but coping. and, the Lord does provide, since i just got orders for five quilts in the past week, which means more $$$. ~~hehe~~ very excited!!!

Ahhh work =$=$ for fabric, yarn,floss,kits, patterns:) Retirement has its reward in time, but a strict budget must be adhered to.l filled a hopechest with many would be projects, kits , yarn etc., even started some projects while working.Learned new quilting techniques, and have been picking away at the "ufo's" from hopechest since retiring 4 yr. ago. l even learned new crafts, like rug hooking. Now l sew/knit for grandkids, family, and donate a lot to causes..knits for Sally Anne hampers, project Linus kid's quilts, wallnhangins for animal shelter fundraisers, bedquilts for hospice house, and many more to come. Soon my grndkids'll be old enough to learn some of these skills:)

Hello everyone, I am new to the forum.  I knit, quilt, counted cross stitch and sew garments.  I live in central Illinois and don't work on my crafts as much as I would like, work gets in the way.
