Sometime in June, I discovered the Fat Quarter Pop-Up. I bought one from Nancy at Nancy's Quilt Shop in Nampa. Then I bought a refill (spring) in Bend, OR on the way back from the Sister's Quilt Show in July. Nancy came to our Kuna meeting last Wednesday and gave a lovely demonstration on how to make these Pop-ups! All you add is your own fat quarter.
Friday night I got out my license plate fabric fat quarter and got started. I finished it up on Saturday morning, just before my hair appointment. I took the Pop-up with me, and I stopped at my dear friend's house to wish her a happy birthday. I gave her the pop-up. A perfect home made gift!
