    Zippered Boxy Bag--My Quilt Guild Challenge Done!

    This month my modern quilt guild had a challenge to make a small zippered boxy bag. We drew sealed envelopes with two paint chips and another drawing had colored zippers--we had no control on what we got. My paint chips of pastel pink and gold were NOT my favorite colors, and the coral pink zipper I drew really turned me off. But I did find a stripe fabric and a gold floral in my stash that seemed to match the chips pretty well, so here it is. It actually came out better than I thought it would. If you want to make the bag, the free tutorial is at http://kelbysews.blogspot.com, and it is called the boxy bag tutorial.

    I love the way it came out, and I love your colors too. great job on it.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    That is so pretty, bright and colorful. Well done. I should make one for my husband with a plastic liner.
    I quilt, therefore I am.

    Love it, and thanks for sharing the tutorial also. Not sure if I will ever be brave enough to make it, but always good to have a tutorial if I do decide to really challenge myself. LOL

    For not liking the colors you sure made them work! Very nice box.
    I made one similar but not as nice to house some of my sewing stuff next to my machine.
