Batting Average? from From the Strawberry Patch...

I usually order my batting on thirty yard rolls and receive it, on average, within a week. That all came to a screeching halt a while back. The batting orders are running way (w-a-a-a-y) behind. I contacted the supplier that I use  as I was getting down to the last few yards and learned that there was at least a six week backlog~ yikes! I hadn't planned on that. A quick perusal around other sites

Bag Lady {Two More Finished Open Wide Bags} from Little Bunny Quilts

Since I had enough notions -- with the exception of zippers -- to make a few more Open Wide bags, I bought a few more zippers and got to work.

The first one that I made is the same three fabrics as the large pouch that I made in the original set, just in the smallest size. I used all of the same colors of thread for quilting and construction so that these are a matching set. 



For the second, I made a medium sized bag using only two different fabrics instead of three. I used the same fabric for both the ...
