    FMQ Messenger Bag and Matching Snap Bag

    Here are a couple more bags I finished yesterday. The outside of the bag is a suede-like fabric with some texture on it; the lining and blocks are quilting cotton. The bags are interlined with Pellon fleece and then quilted.

    The first one is a messenger bag with a special padded pocket inside sized to fit an iPad. The second is a matching "snap" bag to hold my cell phone, wallet, etc. I apliqued some OBW blocks on them, then added a bunch of FMQing. The stitching is a nice light teal color, but it doesn't seem to show too well in the pics.

    Hope you enjoy the pictures!

    Here's the front of the bag. It measures about 13" x 13" x 3".

    These are just absolutely beautiful,the fabric, the colors and I love the free motion quilting, which I'm trying to learn but you obviously have been doing it for a long time, just perfect.

    Maresan, Keep practicing your FMQ and you'll get there too. I've only been doing this for a little over 3 years now, and when I started out it was NOT pretty!
