    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.

    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.

    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.

    What a great bag. And I love your quilt. Black, white, and red is one of my favorite color combos. Love the pattern too. Great job on both and thanks for sharing.

    Thanks everybody! I think this is my 10th quilt, but I'm still very much a beginner. I made my first quilt in 8th grade and I am now a Junior in college. Always learning!

    Your quilt is just wonderful! Sure your mom will love her Mini Cooper bag too. Smart idea to make the bottom yellow.
