    Mandyrose- It came out magnificently !! It is better than I imagined it would be!! I will share it with my BQ quilting friends. I like how you made it your own by making that small change to include the lavender fabric. I am sitting here with tears of joy. You did it !! And in record time.

    Your quilt is beautiful! but the computer bag is awesome! especially with the flower accent. I still love that turquoise/purple flowered fabric.
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    It looks great. I'm thinking the piecing won't be noticeable (to anyone but you) after it's quilted. I had to look to find it.

    Love the way the quilt and bag worked out. Gotta love that purple! After it's quilted your "join" seam won't be noticeable. Nice work!

    It's beautiful! Very creative! Our fore-mothers did a lot of piecing, even in garment construction. Fabric was only 32 - 36 inches wide. I can remember my mom piecing fabric to make gored or flared skirts. She also used solids to "stretch" the fabric (as she would say). She'd make cuffs, collars, belts, trim from a solid fabric which added to the decor.
    One step at a time, always forward.
