I first borrowed this book from the local library:

I had been skimming through it, and it's written in a friendly, chatty style. I'm not a quilter, but was looking for anywhere that might have a bag. (I think I saw in the index that this had a bag in it.)

Anyway, I found out how much fabric was required, and went and bought it. (Yes, I prob'ly had enough to make it, but a new reason to buy fabric isn't to be passed by.)

I saw a fun patterned corduroy, and brought that, for the contrast, I bought a pink cotton/poly blend.

It took a day to do, but, it turned out nicely:

What do you think, Craftsters and guests?

I'm not a quilter, and it is based on quilting principles.
But, the instructions are very clear, so that helped a lot.
The longest part was the cutting out of the strips. Once you get the cutting done, and all the elements assembled for sewing, it's not difficult.
The sewing part is fun.

I chose the corduroy because it was a fun print. The pink was just to kind of calm the print down a bit. It worked well.
