What are you most proud of? I am proud of the colours working well together and that this was a joint effort between my mum and I - we worked together to cut and then divided the squares between us for sewing, my mum in South Africa and mine in the UK. We then worked together to sew it all together over the Christmas holiday.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? We used a round template in cardboard to stretch the round patches and then ironed them to keep the form. The internal patches were quilted with a diagonal cross first, before the round were sewn on with a blind stitch. I used a blanket stitch to sew the blocks together on the inside of the bag. We used 'D'-rings to attach the handles (which were machine sewn.

It's Beautiful! I will try do one when I have finished some of my unfinished projects, as I have made that my new years resolution.
