The Classmate by Atkinson Designs

We had our first fall quilting/therapy session on Thursday so I decided to cut into this one!

I got all the pieces cut for two organizers.

It called for clear vinyl for the pockets but I decided to use some screening also.

Construction was fairly straight forward...

.....unlike some of these patterns I have used in the past.

outside layer

 This was a package of fabric I purchased from The Prairie Rose Quilt Shop in Minot this summer.

It was for a purse but I just thought it would go well with this organizer.

There was a suggestion for a zipper pull using the remainer of the zipper that was cut off.

It works out quite well.

I used this for a clasp.

 I may need to change it to a clip instead as it may be tough to open when it is filled with stuff!!

But all in all, I think it worked out pretty well!!

One Christmas gift down......many more to go!!

Happy Thanksgiving, Canada!!



  1. Very pretty, Christa. I'm using the Atkinson pattern "All About Me" right now and find it very straightforward. I have another one in my "to do" line up. I don't know if you saw I am blogging our 10 day trip to the Maritimes. Only one quilt shop so far.

    1. Thanks for the reminder! I haven't checked it out but will get right on that!! Hope the hunt for quilt shops improves!!

  2. This makes a great presence. Thank you for visiting my blog so I could find yours, XOXO
