Practical and Pretty Projects – And Penguins Too!

More Monday Madness . . .  an eclectic selection of projects.

Use these itty-bitty purses to give a gift of Mad Money or a gift card. Tuck a bit of jewelry or a lip gloss inside. Use as party favors for a little girl’s birthday party or for a wedding shower. Have fun with these and embellish to your heart’s content.

Brickwork is the prettiest brick I’ve seen in a long while.  Instructions are included for queen, twin and crib sized quilts.   The crib sized quilt is a “quilt-as-you-go” project.

These Pick-A-Pocket organizers come in two sizes: 20″ x 40″ and 20″ x 46″.  So many uses . . . . sewing room, home office, kids room.

Quilt Study has instructions are for 10 different miniature quilt blocks measuring 1.5″ square.  Layouts are shown for three different sizes of finished collages.

The City Bag is a big enough (11″ x 17″) purse to carry everything you need.  It has a whole lot of pockets.  This bag would also work well as a small diaper bag. Instructions include Lazy Girl’s ‘No Fear’ zipper technique.



Pattern and all fabrics needed to make this Penquin Chorus Line wall hanging are included.  All you’ll need is batting and backing.

Do you have a layer cake that you’ve been holding on to, looking for just the right recipe? Cherries Jubilee might be the one. Instructions are included for How To Sew Curves.

There are so many quilt patterns at Quilters Warehouse that you could spend hours browsing and still not see them all.  Hopefully you saw something new here today.

Kathie’s Kreations: PURSEsonality & Six Pack Mini Quilts

Kathie has a full line of purses that you can make and they each have a unique PURSEsonality.  All of her purses use the KK handles but you’ll only need one set – they are reuseable – just pop them in the purse you are currently using.

 If you’ve never made one before you could start with My Fall Purse.  Use tone on tone fall color fabrics or go all out and use themed fabrics.  Either way, the leaves and pumpkins will ‘fall’ into place and help you step out in autumn style.

Apple Basket is another fall themed purse. Take it with you when you go apple picking! Or to shop at the Farmer’s Market.


 Then get a head start on your winter PURSEsonality with Snowman In The Woods.   Isn’t he a cheery looking guy?  But we’re not going to see snow for a looooonnnng time.  Really!  Hopefully we can be as cheerful about it when it does come!



That’s just a few of the purses. But there was mention of six-packs.  No, not beer!  Six Pack Mini Quilts are Kathie’s own Kreation.  Six traditional six inch blocks are the focus of these quilts.  They are each surrounded in a Kreative way and tah dah! – you have a charming mini quilt.


Ohio Star has a dramatic, patriotic look to it.  This quilt finishes at 30″ x 42″.


Sister’s Choice would look great in Christmas fabrics.  It’s a perfect little wallhanging size to decorate for the season.




Kathie’s Kreations has several more purses and six pack mini quilts.  She also has several placemats and table runners.  Enjoy!
