Yes, I jumped on the bandwagon again. These are the latest. The purple/flower one is mine. I made the straps too long and think I will probably shorten them somehow. The black and white one is for my sister's friend. The other black and white one with the tan and blue is for me. I love this material. I purchased a whole bolt of it. I quilted both black and white purses with my Pfaff Grand Quilter at the same time. I made the front, bottom and back all at one time and basted it to the batting, then quilted them.

This one is mine

Just beautiful. Did you use the Mini Bow Tuck pattern.? I used the mini the last time and I love it more than the regular size. :thumbup:

Love those bags! Trying to imagine how to quilt front, bottom and back which have been basted to the batting.....I am visualizing 3 sections, each basted to their batting, but how do you put them together w/o seams being really thick? Guess you can tell I have not yet attempted to make a "Bow-Tucks" bag.

You sew the top front, the bottom and the top back in one long rectangle. Then pin or baste it to a large piece of batting. Mount it on the long-arm frame and quilt using a panto. It was hard doing two at a time because I couldn't move from one to the other without catching the edge in the free motion foot. But it worked and was way easier than sewing cross hatching on each bag one at a time.
