hours of practice on samples of free motion quilting as left me with several pieces...too good to toss...what to do with these pieces as plagued me...at the same time i have been doing lots of knitting...knitting needles were a constant mess and source of frustration... ah! use up those quilt pieces and make cases for all those needles....
as these pieces were quite big i was able to make large cases. i sewed some left over binding across the bottom edge...then i folded the bottom edge up to the depth
i wanted the pockets to be... i then sewed more binding along the three edges....side, top and opposite side...when i sewed this binding on i made sure to put a tie in so when rolled up i have a tie to close the case....when all done i sewed pockets for the size of needles i wanted it to hold...

i love the free form butterfly on the outside...i used superior threads rainbows... they give great colour and sheen... now i have somewhere beautiful to keep my needles organized...i made two more...one each for straight needles and one for circular needles...now what to do with the ones i produce in the future as i work on the 2012 free motion quilting challenge sponsored by sewcalgal
