    This is for my eldest daughter who picked out Pepper Metro Market fabric collection. I call it Baskets of Wishes since the sashing is in a Best Wishes pattern. When my daughter said she like this pattern she didn't know it was baskets, she thought it was purses. :-)

    I did a brief search of "purse quilt block" and came up with so many links for purse patterns that I didn't even want to start looking. Does anyone know of some purse patterns?

    That is a beautiful pattern. Now that you mention it they do look like purses.

    Ooops... I should have said the sashing is in the Warm Wishes pattern, not Best Wishes.

    I'm working on another one that has Best Of All blocks and got my names mixed up.

    Thanks for the purse links, I'll take a look. Leave it to my daughter, the Coach Purse Queen, that she sees purses instead of baskets.

    Here is a purse quilt pattern. It's called "In the Bag". It is a throw size quilt that is 62" X 77" or a wall quilt that is 35" X 48".

    That is so cute! That is a wholesaler so I'll see if I can find a seller. I bet if I showed my daughter that one she'd like it. If I can't find it for retail sale, maybe my daughter would like to design her own purses.

    The other one My Little Purse is darling. Could use actual buttons on the purses.

    Pam you are incredible!!! Another quilt already!

    I think the pic you posted looks like purses (only being British I'd call 'em 'handbags'! LOL )too - you could embellish those with buttons etc to make them look even more so...

    It's just the design I drew for her quilt, not started yet. The fabric collection is supposed to be out in March and I keep checking but, not yet.

    I'm still cutting fabric for my middle daughter's quilt, the feathered star. I will probably need more of the beige background, not totally sure yet since I have 6 FQs plus 2 yards of difference beiges in the collection. I am going to order a jelly roll of it for the log cabins so I don't have to cut all those strips!

    Yes, I may be able to add some things to make them look even more like purses like a different colored flap sewn on, buttons, etc.

    Yes but the way you plan ahead - you're an inspiration!

    Pam, I took a class from Barbara Randle and love doing the Barbara Randle Purses. Go to her web site and see what she does. It is flip and sew but you can do so much with it. The books can be ordered and I got mine off of the web site.... champusI (the I is a capital i). They will give you the best price. You just put her name in the search. Do one of these and you are hooked!
