I’m so excited to write this today. I get to talk about my absolute favorite topic- Quilting! I’ve been quilting for about twelve years, and I’m a big proponent of project bags. Quilters have these pesky little things called WIPs- Works in Progress. That means we take on way too many projects at once, and the best way to keep them organized: a Yazzii bag!
Maxie Yazzii- CA375
There are several different options for gifting your favorite quilter a Yazzii bag, but today I want to focus solely on block storage. The Maxie Yazzii is the ultimate choice. If you want a friend to become a best friend- this is the bag to buy! It has ELEVEN storage compartments galore to hold WIPs, cutting mats, patterns, up to three yards of fabric, notions, thread, whatever your quilter needs to store! This is an ideal bag to send with your quilter for a quilting retreat. It has a space for everything she needs to carry!
Quilt Block Showcase Bag- CA370
Another option for your quilter is the Quilt Block Showcase bag. It is 7cm (nearly three inches) thick so it can store a lot of blocks! I think this is the bag for those WIPs we talked about. Your quilter can work on her blocks, store the extra fabric in the bag, then when she needs a break from this project, she can put it away and pull another out! The Quilt Block Showcase will hold up to 37cm (approximately 12 inch) quilt blocks, plus whatever notions need to be tucked away. And with a convenient window, she can see exactly which project she has inside it! These can be stored vertically or horizontally on a shelf, so you can quickly switch to a new project.
Quilt Block Carry Case- CA371
The Quilt Block Carry Case is a unique storage option- I’ve never seen another bag similar to this one. It has a dual zipper that allows the bag to open flat. So when you put freshly pressed blocks into it, they stay freshly pressed until you open the bag again! If you have miniature quilter to store, this is a dust-free option- no one likes the smell of basement on their quilts! It’s so convenient that Yazzii provides the clear pockets. As much as quilters like digging through their stash, when we’re in a hurry, we just want to grab and go! This Block Carry Case makes that possible.
The beautiful thing about quilters is that we love anything that simplifies our craft. Though you may not know the handiest notions or your Kaffe Fasset from your Tula Pink, you can successfully shop for your quilter. One of these three Yazzii bags would make any quilter smile, and she may even make you a present to say thank you!
