All the fabrics from my stash, and I created something very practical for me.  Can't get better than that!

Here is the front



It might look a bit lumpy because it's real purpose is to hold my knitting needles (and even a few crochet ones too) as you can see by the back



Here it is rolled up and ready for transport



And a close-up of the pinwheel block, my favorite block.  I used a batik for the background, my favorite type of fabric.



It's a very foggy day today, so I had trouble getting a good picture.  Here is one of the front in more light, and more shadows, but it shows I barely made the size requirement.



I hope you like it, I'm quite happy about it.   Smiley

Wow!!  That's really pretty and practical.  I made a case for my knitting needles, but it was no where as cool as yours!!  I like how you have two layers of pockets for needles!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who does more than quilt.  I have way to many interests!!

Great Job!!

Thanks everyone!  I have way too many interests too.  But I'm learning it's ok, if I only take on reasonable projects, and finish them before I start something else, with few exceptions.  Wink

Mrsblocko, I don't remember where I got that batik.   Huh  I'm pretty sure it was a fat quarter that came in a pack of them, maybe from Joann, but I can't say for sure.  Aren't batiks so appealing?  You just can't go wrong with them.

And I forgot to mention, the green flowery fabric is one I used to line a purse I made, so my needle roll will match when I carry it in there.   Cheesy
