I finished this bag today... finally!!
I'm learning with each project I attempt and I keep trying new-to-me techniques.
This was an easy to make no pattern bag... just lots of squares and rectangles.
It's lined with a coordinating fabric and has inner pockets.
This was my first attempt at lowering those 'feed dogs' and trying free-motion quilting.
I just jumped in and did a circular design (resembling a beanstalk) down the center of each fabric strip.
They are very abstract, but I'm happy with the total effect.
I'm anxious to make a Christmas bag now. I sketched it and can't wait to cut the fabric tomorrow so I can play with 'free-motion' again.
