    Friend told me to post these

    I started the purse on Sunday and have been working on the quilt for a year. My friend/quilting buddy/teacher passed away in Feb and I'm just now getting my Mojo back.The paisley type fabric is the lining with the inside pocket of purse. The red square shows a freehand drawing I'm trying to FMQ. I have one strip of QAYG done so far. It's from a Quilt mag, Aug/Sept 2011 called Rhythm in Blues. Friends wanted asian looking quilt, in red black and white. Now that I posted this, I'll be invested in finishing the whole thing and showing it off. There will be lots of mistakes, but it will be well-loved.

    Neat bag. Is it your own patteran? If not, I would like to know where it came from, It's really different. I LOVE your FMQ design, too! Please post the quilt when done!

    You will have a great time using the bag. What a great design. And this is a perfect place to perfect your FMQ. It gets easier and better with every project. I am glad your friend told you to post. I am sorry for your loss, that is always so hard.

    Very pretty. There are no "mistakes" they are artistic accidents so that no one can duplicate your work!! Sorry to hear about your loss.

    It's Simplicity 2169, version C of the pattern. I dug into all the stash we had, and it requires a couple of big pieces, so just fat quarters wouldn't do. It could be really funky if someone made freeform fabric, then cut the pieces out of it. Kind of like a crazy quilt. I think it needs a couple of smaller outside pockets for cell phone and keys. All in all, this is a great tote!

    Good job. Glad you posted these.
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.
