I had ordered a charm pack of this wonderful wonderland fabric a while back and knew I would make something with it but wasn't sure what.
I decided on my very own quilt bag and followed a pattern out of a quilt magazine I've had for a while. I like it pretty good, I guess.
It will be great when I go to the quilt show in vermont with my aunt next month...lot's of room for fabric!!!

I stippled both front and back of the bag and did swirlies as I like to call them on the sides. Handles were just straight lines. Oh I wonder what wonderful quilty things this bag will carry ??

If you're going to the Vermont Quilt Festival Jill, make another one!!! Last year was my first time and I didn't know what to expect and I was kind of stage struck. This year I'm going to shop til I drop...literally!

Have fun and start making another bag...maybe even two more. (wink)

Kaaren, I wish I had the time to make another one..I know I will probably be stage struck too. I am only taking so much money with me, so hopefully I don't over flow my bag!!
Thanks Sinta and Kimberly I actually tried your cookie recipe yesterday and my son LOVED them, I even got a hug out of it..lol

Great bag! I think you may want to bring an empty suitcase for all the goodies you'll buy at the quilt show.
Don't laugh, I'm serious! LOL

Kristin said...

WOWZA, I love this bag! The size looks just right for fitting in all sorts of treasures!!!!

Thanks Girls. I am planning on bringing an extra large suitcase! I am secretly wishing that my aunt will feel the need to get rid of some of her HUGE stash of fabric. She knows I love Nancy Halvorsen and she told me she found a couple of boxes of her fabric!!!
