    Here is a quilted bag I made and sent to my sister who lives in IN. She and her husband have carried on her fil's tradition of collecting tractors.

    Cute! Lot's of room for goodies.

    Lot more expensive to collect tractors than fabric and sewing machines. Ok, maybe not. My Dh would love a tractor to refurbish and use. ;-)

    Love your bag but......the tractors are the wrong color. I have been trained from birth that red tractors are bad, John Deere green ones are good. :mrgreen:

    It was hard enough to find the fabric she'd like - normally she only goes for Case trackers - orange!!! I could NEVER make a John Deere one for her - until, of course, they break down and buy one of those ;)
