I found my camera and am going to post pictures of the 2 things I finished on Saturday!
(The quilt is for me, I realize the fabric choices aren't for everybody, but I love it.)

Mini Cooper Bag - Mom's birthday/Mother's Day present. She has a bright yellow Mini, hence the yellow bottom.

Inside of bag, I decided to keep the 'car' theme going.

(And that was me wrapped in the quilt originally. I uploaded the wrong picture at first so had to change it.)

I like your quilt! For some reason, my color choices work better on a dark(ish) quilt then on the light ones, therefore I do alot of dark.

Thanks everybody!
I'm really excited to give my mom the bag but I don't know when I will see her because of finals and all that fun stuff.

Oh do I like that black and white check in the inside of the bow tuck.

That is actually the 'wrong' side of the fabric! I liked the grey better than the solid black and white check.
And it isn't a bow tuck. I used this pattern and added the straps in the middle to 'close' it.
