Bags and stuff!!

I have been working on finishing things for a while and am happy to report that the Tranquility quilt top made so long ago has now been finished and gifted.

 A little bit of hand quilting on some of the flowers... but mainly machined.

And the person it was for is a bit of a purple girl so hence the mauve spot back.

A very long time ago I started a bag pattern by Monica Poole called Blooming Bags.

 While a little bit difficult it was great to learn a few more techniques. She gives you the details on how to make this flower.

Which is removable using brooch backs.

So here it is.... the fabric used is some of Kaffe Fassett's prints and shot cottons which I am in love with. (Shot Cottong, Bordeaux and Primula in Magenta)

We just got in this book as well - some amazing quilt designs in this one.  Now that the weather has improved (for crafting) I am making plans to start to finish and to continue....
