A couple months ago I ordered this book "Fabulous Fat-Quarter Bags" by M'Liss Rae Hawley from C&T Publishing. They had a "special" offer and the prices were super low, so I ordered this book and 2 others.
I needed a gift and decided to make a bag from this book. The name of the bag is "Fat-Quarter Carryall." That should have been a clue that it was a large bag.
So, I had the pattern, and needed the fabric - 6 fat quarters. Last year in May or June, I entered a giveaway for some FQs and won them. It just so happened that the location of the blogger was real close to our son's house in Oregon where we were going, so we decided to meet at the LQS where she would give me the bundle of fabric. The blogger was Amity Quilter who moved away shortly after we moved here. :-(
Anyway, I used the 6 FQs to make this bag, but then I needed fabric for lining and handles, so I hunted through my stash closet and saw this polka dot that I had gotten at Good Will. Yea!
The FQ Carry All is finished and it will carry a lot of stuff!
Are you making gifts? Have fun! I need to make a few more gifts and I'm also going to start baking this week. Only 2 weeks until Christmas? What? Better get busy.
