Talk about a terrific idea! Fast, Fun & Easy Fabric Bowls presents an idea
that is quickly catching on in the textile world. Debuting fall 2003 at the Houston Quilt Market, this
book is one of the most sought after books in the quilting and sewing world. If you havenít purchased this
book, now is the time, and as Linda says, it is fast, fun and easy! I also think it is addicting...I bet
you canít make just one!
Using Timtex as the filler and stiffening base to keep the bowlís shape, the
bowl is washable and reversible. Using two different fabrics, you can make several different bowl shapes
There are so many uses for the bowls. After making one bowl, my sister-in-law
decided to make them as favors for mints at her sonís wedding last weekend. I have used them as hostess gifts
for my friends and plan to make several as gifts for the holidays. Try putting towels in the bathroom in them,
or fruit in the kitchen. Use them in your sewing room, or as just a decoration on a table without anything in
it. They are beautiful just standing alone.
How about having a bowl making party? Call your friends who sew and get together
and see how many different varieties of bowls you can make in an evening. It would also be a great quilt retreat
activity. Call your local quilt shop, I bet they are having a class you can join
What are you using the bowls for? email us all the uses you can come up
with at firstname.lastname@example.org
We will post them on the theQuilterCommunity.com! Take pictures of you and your friends making bowls and send those
to us to be posted.
