This yummy Quattro was created by Mary Lou Wightman of BC, Canada. She said she lucked up and got these beautiful fabrics from a woman who had to sell off much of her stash because she was moving across the country!

Lillian Conti of Dayton, OH said that this Triple Play bag was a challenge but she’s really enjoying the compliments she’s receiving for it now and I can see why. She really did a fabulous job!


And this Quattro sure looks pretty in paisley, no? Martha Payne was encouraged to enter this beauty into our contest by members of her quilt guild in Dallas, TX because they fell in love with it!

And was I thrilled when Pam Hays stopped by my booth in Paducah, KY? You bet, because she showed me the stunning Walkabout Wallet she had made which also happens to be the very FIRST Walkabout Wallet entered into this contest! Of course I took these pictures on the spot because I loved it!
And Regina Fultz of Richmond, KY told me that her new HipBag Hybrid was an absolutely perfect show bag. She love having everything at her fingertips while still being handsfree. Regina even made a matching Card Cozy!
And how do you like this eye-popping Wrapsody created by Kathryn Poche of Gonzales, LA. I wish you could’ve seen how excited she was to show it to me in person in Paducah, KY!
And last but not least, here’s Carmen Selzer‘s feline-inspired Cosmo Convertible.  Take special notice of Carmen’s expert fussy-cutting! She did such a great job that the flap pocket on the bag front and the zippered pocket on the back are virtually unnoticeable! 🙂

So…there you have it!
