Friday Finds

I just wanted to give a shout out to some great resources that I have seen lately.

First the Make A Bag series at ikatbag.  Holy Uncontrollable Detail, Batman!  This series of post goes into amazing detail on bag shapes, straps, finishing and linings with more posts on the way.  It is not a series of tutorials, but an in depth discussion on bag theory so that you will be able to design and make your own bags.  You will want to keep reading even after the series is over to see the incredible things she makes for her kids from cardboard.  The woman is amazing!  And a hoot to boot.

The Curve it Up Quilt Along with the Quick Curve Ruler has been going for awhile, but I want to order a ruler and jump right in.  

Look at the latest block they made in the series - The Curve it Up Log Cabin - tutorial found here.  I think I am in love!  Check out the flickr group for more pictures.  Links to the block tutorials can be found in the flickr group discussion or on the side bar of Jenny's blog Sew Kind of Wonderful.

What great things have you seen lately?


  1. I am loving the Quick Curve Ruler series. I have that ruler and have used it for three quilts now. I love it. The curves are so easy! I haven't started the series yet because I'm trying to finish my UFOs first. But it's on my list!


  2. I have been following the Curve It Up qal through a friend of mine's blog. I have been SO tempted to join in. The flickr stream has used up a decent amount of my browsing time.

  3. Thanks for the link on bags. Been wanting to make some. This will be a good starting point.
