Remember this quilting from a couple weeks ago?
It's the back side of a pieced quilt sandwich.
Now that birthday presents have been given, I can show you what the front looks like. Following a tutorial on LuAnn's blog, I sewed strips together, sandwiched and quilted the fabric.
From the quilted fabric, I cut out and sewed zipper bags.LuAnn was able to make five bags using 45"-wide fabric. My fabric wasn't that wide, so I could make only four bags. You can see I turned fabric different directions to assemble the bags. I also changed zipper directions, and added ribbon and beads to the zipper pull tabs.
All the bags have been spoken for, so it was a worthwhile effort that went a long way. It's fun to surprise friends with an unexpected birthday present.
Thank you, LuAnn for a great idea.
