    Allyce's Fabric Finds a home after 27 years!

    My DML passed away in 1987...she had a huge stash of fabric and two very odd pieces...her sister got all the stash...I got the two odd pieces...this one was her...bold and bright and colorful...I've saved it all these years waiting for the right thing to come along and for me this is it... It was fun to fmq around the design and I thought of her with each stitch. She was only 63...too young.

    The fabric is fabulous, so much 'movement and wonderful color!!
    Seems it had to wait until this new "incarnation" of orange to find its perfect use!

    Great bag! Your MIL and I would have gotten along very well, if one can judge that from a fabric choice!
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    The round shape of the purse is perfect for the fabric, with its swirling movement. It turned out great!

    Beautiful purse, and what a wonderful way to remember your DMIL. I wonder what you're going to do with the other odd piece?

    Wonderful use of her fabric and she'd be so happy that she's still in your memory and now a concrete part of your life.

    Lovely purse. That fabric is pretty vibrant for that era. I wouldn't be surprised to see that in a shop today. It's almost Kaffe-like. You DMIL had good taste.

    That is so cool. Great use of fabric for this bag. The print looks almost 3-D
