November finishes..........



I had three finishes in November, all quilts I started in July and August this year.  I still have the blue batik, the smaller African fabric, and Zinnia Garden to finish; all are part of the 16 patch series.  Of course that is in addition to the 40+ tops from previous years and early this year.  I'm going to push for a grand slam of finishes in December.
Several people inquired about the container I showed yesterday.  This is the packaging and I bought mine at W*l-mart.  I had never heard of them until I saw a coupon in the Sunday newspaper. If you buy 2 you can make a 3 or 4 stack unit.  You will have the extra lid if you want to take one off and use it singly.  This one is about 6" x 9".  I have one that is larger than this one too.

Then about a month later there was another coupon and this size (about 4") was included free in a stack container like the one above.





There are 4 latching flaps as well as that red seal for a really tight fit.  I haven't tried it with liquid in it but I bet it won't leak if tipped.  I use these small ones for food, the stack ones for quilty pieces.

Those are cute and useful. Must be in housewares department. The quilts in your pictures together are really neat looking. Chris

You had a very productive month. Thanks for the information about the containers.

I used to find the first one you show at my local Wal-Mart then I couldn't find them for ages but found them at hobby lobby. I also have the other one you show - I keep those in the camper for storing left overs and they haven't spilled anything so far

I agree. The Snapware containers are great for patchwork. I bought one similar to yours for take along hexies. Scissors and notions in the top, papers and basted hexies in the middle, and finished ones in the bottom. They are quite reliable and don't accidentally open.

Are you going to have another showing of your quilts like in the video on your blog? If so, I want to see it in person! I use the snapware for food, and they work really well. I haven't seen the ones you use for your projects. I will have to look for that one next time?

I have found some nice containers at the Dollar Tree....not as strong but usable....for quilting projects.

Such pretty finishes! I love finding the perfect containers and often wonder what I would do without plastic.

Thank you for sharing the container picture Wanda. I found a similar snap lid container at Dollar General recently that is tall enough for storing flour or sugar. It doesn't have a handle, but I do like the 4-snap lid.

Seeing your three quilts in a line is helpful to understand how a series progresses.

Bonnie Hunter touted the advantages of Snapware a couple of years ago and a friend gave me a small double-decker container. I've acquired more since then. Joann's sells a variety of sizes. They are very convenient.

I bought some similar snapware at JoAnn's after Xmas last year. The big container I bought was for storing Xmas ornaments and I am not sure what the smaller one was for but I used them to replace my broken down sewing box. I got them real cheap since they were marked down with the Xmas stuff. My lids are green, but the containers are clear. They just keep my trims and zippers neat and clean.

A friend gave me a stack of 6 of the 6x9 size. I use the top one as my sewing box that I take everywhere. It sits on top of 2 others next to my machine that have sewing feet, needles, etc. Then the other 3 serve as containers for triangles, bricks etc. for easy access. Love the fact you can see through them! Great finishes!

The second ones are the ones I use. They will fit in drawers and on shelves so nicely!
