Stitchery Project Roll

I mentioned in my last post the project roll I finished ~ we were to complete the stitchery prior to the class and I was on track to do so until 2 days before the class I left my sewing bag in the office!  So I was up very late the following night and actually finished at the beginning of the class.
There were six of us making the project roll at Just Quilting and it was a lovely class and I actutally managed to finish ~ I'm not sure but this may be a first!
I don't know about you but choosing fabric for a project takes me forever and as I wanted to use threads in the stitchery that co-ordinated I called in the week before to do this and also to trace the design using the light box.
I really enjoyed the stitchery once I got started, I always worry that my stitches are too big/too small/not straight but............. I'm very pleased with how this turned out.

 Here's mine both inside and out ~ the quilted lines are a little wonky!  Those are the LM's legs in the background ~ oops.
It's a large size as it's meant to be used for quilt blocks ~ it currently holds about 6 of my stitching projects that are waiting to be finished.


These are all the finished rolls pictured at the end of the class ~ mine is 2nd from the front.
We also started to make a little needle book too which you can see just to the right of Jill's roll at the front.
I have another class booked at Just Quilting next month ~ Christmas in July ~ I'm really looking forward to seeing what's in store for us.  Hopefully I will finish something in that class too.

Kate, your project roll is beautiful! Is the pattern available anywhere - I didn't see it on the Just Quilting website but don't think I'll be crossing the Big Pond anytime soon. Love your choices for fabrics.
