    Messenger Bag-OBW with FMQ

    Here's my latest messenger bag. It measures about 13x13x3. Inside it has a large open pocket, a zipperd pocket, a cell phone pocket and a key ring. This is a pattern that I developed and my design is original. Enjoy!(Edit: I'm having a little trouble with the picture sizes... hope they are viewable for you.)

    Really like this. How large are your triangles that make up the OBW's?

    Becky, The triangles are pretty small, I cut them from a 2 1/2" strip. I did these OBW blocks as a "demo" for my daughter who is just starting a larger quilt with some gorgeous fabric. Once I had them, I had to figure out what to do with them, so I appliqued them onto a piece of heavier fabric to use for the bag.
