I don’t enjoy any sewing other than piecing for quilts. So, this was unusual for me. I wanted to make a bag to carry my quilts in instead of using free ones I’ve gotten from vendors. I couldn’t find a pattern I liked. I have books and magazines with patterns, not to mention the free ones on the internet. Most of them were too complicated for what I wanted. I took bits and pieces from multiple sources and came up with this.
It’s very simple. Not pocket or zipper. Being a long arm quilter, I had to put it on my machine to quilt it. Which was easy enough except for the design choice I made. The digitized design had directionality (is that a word?) and negative space. I managed to remember to flip and mirror images in relation to the center motif of the fabric. However, it left a little gap where the repeats met in the center. This probably doesn’t make any sense to you.
I’m very happy with the finished bag. I can take it to the Home Machine Quilters Show in Salt Lake.
