Or should I say tote bag. I finally made a Bow Tucks Bag. These have been all over the Quilt Board. So, I ventured out. When I went to Knoxville to the AQS show in July, I bought a kit with the pattern to make this bag. Saturday I started, Sunday afternoon I sewed some more. Finally got all the parts made. Here they are. The directions say to use fusible fleece, which I did, and the quilt as desired. I quilted the sunflower part in a diamond going sideways grid and the dark bottom just straight lines. I quilted the lining further apart with a square grid on point. Using purple thread. I do like it. But boy this is taking forever! Some of the folks on the Board are make 4-6 in a weekend. How did they do this? Well, my friend Susan, Yes that is Susan in Aiken, told me I didnt have to do all that quilting if I used the fusible fleece. DUHHHH!! Susan knows. She make lots of bags and teaches bag classes in Aiken. I am not in Aiken. So sorry!!
Anyway here it is Tuesday. I had to finish quilting Dottie's quilt yesterday. I finally got all the parts together. I still need a button for the closing, but that will come. And I would like some beads on the bows. Will have to raid my sons scout stuff to see what he may have, you never know. So, the unveiling!! TA DA Love it!!! turned out great. But next time, I wont quilt it
