i just love this thing  Cheesy i pieced and quilted the quilt block on the front and decided to make it functional by turning it into a pocket.  the button is an old glass button i have a few of and the picture does not do it real justice... the colors are very pretty and swirly i and it has a nice shine since it is glass.  the bag its self is quilted by me and instead of messing around with bias tape or any kind of trim i just did a quilt binding on the the top and pocket since it is much easier for me lol.  my only real mistake is i cut my fabric to size then quilted it so it messed around with the size..and i ended up making the lining a bit too small but i will just deal with it.  the fabric on the inside is a mystery content to me.  i know its old since i bought it from an antique market but i think there may be some silk in it since its so flowy. now onto pictures! <3

i hope you enjoy it as much as i do!

Absolutely gorgeous!  I love the lining fabric too.  It goes so well with the colors of the quilt!
