Thanks for the "warm fuzzies" everyone!

Purple is my all-time favorite color so I had to put it on somewhere! It'll also be the lining.

Honestly as frustrating as it was to sort out and put together, it has been a lot of fun. A good chunk of the issues stem from the fact that my patience is next to zero and I have back issues that prevent me from going on good long sewing binges.

But if anyone decides to try it this year, there's all sorts of blogs out there with advice and I'd be more than happy to add in the tidbits that I learned from working on it.  Grin

Love the bag. Did you put pics on it or is that the fabric print?

Here is what I've been up to...



Now I need to do my least favorite part - the quilting!   Grin

Ditto! And of course, once I actually get to basting, it's not even that bad, I just dread it and put it off!

So annoyed. I went to bind a quilt and my binging is six inches shy of making it all the way around.  Angry. I used an online quilt shop's binding calculator too.  Luckily I found the fabric online but still.  SIGH...

Sorry for the delay in answering and getting more pics up.

donniesgirl: all the fabrics on the bag except for the purple are from Michael Miller's "Ghastlies" line. The pockets with the portraits are pieced together from 2 separate fabrics. You can see them better in my previous post.

The purple is just plain kona cotton and the green on the inside of the handles is cotton duck.

A quilty finish for me for April.  I did a swap on instagram.  I made a cathedral window pillow cover.  It was my first time trying that technique.
