Houston Modern Quilt Guild Swaps

I finished up a little sewing last weekend for 2 Houston Modern Quilt Guild swaps.

First up was the birthday swap... we take turns bringing in a little gift for birthday girls... a little fabric, a little chocolate, and a handmade item. This year I'm gifting Gabby as her birthday is the next one after mine.

I know Gabby likes the Washi fabric collection, so I used scraps from a quilt I'm working on to make her a little clutch (pattern is Strap Clutch by Keyka Lou)

Since I won't be at this weekend's HMQG meeting Gabby and I were able to get together for lunch Sunday and so I could deliver her gift.

I loved putting together the clutch! I've got fabrics picked out for another one (this one will be for me).

March also brings to a close the Scrap Swap we started in January. I brought home a selection of flannel scraps from Pam. After much thought I decided to make her a patchwork basket. After all, who doesn't need a little additional storage in their sewing room.

I'm excited to see what my partner made for me... maybe I'll get a sneak peak before the April meeting.
