Finishing things, and a brand new bag!

Do you ever get an idea, from a previous quilt?  I made a wonderful table topper from Marcie Patch's pattern this week, and then got to thinkin'...how about making a bag with strings and this pattern?   So here it is!!  I am not going to use it for a while, I will just admire it until I am ready to change purses.  I truly love sewing my scraps into something useful!!


I am working on finishing some things up.  This is an overwhelming task, but little by little, I am persevering!!


Hope you have a great day today, everyone!!

I want to make a string quilt like the one on your header and I was wondering where I could find the pattern? It's the exact same quilt that they gave away at a raffle for a Treadle On Gathering Academy (TOGA) I went to a couple of weeks ago. Thanks!

I love it! I made a dresser runner from that pattern but I never thought of making a bag. Your bag will be so fun to use!
