    wonky star quilted bag

    I'm trying to use up some of my scraps. Seems like I haven't made a dent yet, but I'm still going. This bag I quilted the inside and outside fabric so it's pretty stable. I did not use stabilizer at all in it. It's a good way to use up scraps and now I have a cute bag to carry around for all my crochet stuff in.

    Beautiful bag, and it's a good thing cause you'll have to make lots more if you really want to use up scraps! They multiply at night, you know. lol Happens while you're sleeping, that's why quilters have trouble sleeping at night! Really! Has nothing to do with the ideas and projects whirling in your head. Those are just around so you're entertained. Nope, the real problem is the scraps!

    Great use of small orphan blocks.

    I hope this questions makes sense -
    Does this mean that it's batting to batting within the bag, or did the quilt sandwiches for both the outside and inside liner also have backing fabrics? Thnx.

    Your quilting takes a simple bag to something just beautiful.

    The inside has a layer of fabric quilted with batting and the outside has the layer of fabric and quilted with batting.
    I hope that I explained it ok.
