Then the picture of a favorite bag of mine. I found the pattern in a japanese book on bags and it is the just the right size to hold a quilt for when I go to show-and-tells. The hexagons are hand-sewed and hand-quilted, as the cover (or lap?) and the rest is machine-sewed and machine-quilted.
The inside is made out of a Laura Aschley fabric, which I had bought for the back of a quilt but which turned out too small to be used.
The leather handles are from a second-hand bag I bought at a flea market for very little money. I love going to flea-markets to find things like that. When I was in France this summer I bought some more ugly bags with nice handles but I still have to sew the bags!
I wonder where this summer is gone. We are having very unusual weather here, some kind of monsoon! One day cold, the next heavy rain, then very hot and humid,... Well I CAN´T work in the garden with a wind like that, can I?! I can only stay inside sewing and quilting, what a shame!
Thank you very much for the nice comments on my two old quilts.
Have a nice time!
