Just Jane, Just for Me

Getting quilty mail is always fun but getting quilty mail that comes in packages with dots…



...that’s exceptionally fun and super special.

Stephanie, who blogs at Rummage and before that at Loft Creations, wrote Uncommonly Corduroy.  I have previously shared how much I love this book of bag and quilt patterns.  You can see some but not all, of the bags I made from her book here and here.

The one pattern I had not tried was Stephanie’s Just Jane bag.  That is until she surprised me with a kit containing all of the fabrics and notions I needed to make it.  



The kit contained 21 wale corduroy, a fabric I had not previously used.  It is so easy to work with and I will definitely be using it again.  She also included a mini charm pack of Color Me Happy by V and Co. for Moda.  I love this line of fabric, it reflects some of my favorite colors.

I took the opportunity to test the new little Pfaff by making my new tote.  The machine passed the test.  It transitioned very nicely from just piecing to quilting through Soft and Stable.  I’m really loving the built-in walking foot.




Thank you Stephanie for your kind generosity!  I love my Just Jane bag.

What a nice way to become new best friends with your Pfaff. Your bag looks amazing. I'm so very happy you enjoy bag making, corduroy and my book as well. Thank you for sharing the corduroy love.

Oh My Goodness!! Stephanie picked the perfect "Florida" colors for you and you turned out an absolutely adorable Just Jane! I'm so glad to hear you've discovered how wonderful the 21-wale corduroy is to work with, too! I think you and your new Pfaff were meant to be!
Cheers!

I knew when you mentioned the spots it had to be from Stephanie. Her trademark. :0)
