A New Coat for my Rotary Cutter

I’m heading off shortly to Hood Canal in Washington State for a quilt retreat organized by the Pine Needle, the quilt shop where I teach. On one evening I’m going to show my students how to make a rotary cutter coat based on my free pattern (tutorial here).

As I was gathering my materials yesterday, I realized I didn’t have a rotary cutter coat of my own. All the ones I have made were given away.

I fixed that in short order. Here is my (new) rotary cutter coat:

The fabric? Two prints from the Paradise line designed by Alisse Courter for Camelot Cottons. I bought a lot of this line when it came out last year. You may recognize it, because it goes with the Junior Billie Bag I made a few months ago. These are the front and back panels of my bag:

Now my Billie Bag is packed for the retreat, including my new rotary cutter coat:

I’m good to go!

    Have a wonderful time! Don’t you love being all coordinated when you go traveling? Just a wondering question: have you ever weighed your supply bag when it is all loaded? I heard from another friend that her “Big” Billy bag weighed a ton (sure that was a slight exaggeration).

    Are you working on any of your own projects in addition to teaching during this retreat?
