What materials did you use? 100% cotton leftovers from a fat quarter stack of coordinated fabrics purchased in Gatlinburg, TN in 2009 to make the quilt that was hanging on the shop wall. I made the quilt and had just enough left for this bag. The bottom was made from a homebuilder's decorator samples of drapery & upholstery fabrics. This piece was 3 times bigger than I needed and was a perfect weight.

What are you most proud of? That I finished it. I made some crazy mistakes even though Tara is a wonderful instructor. The bulk of the project made it a fight to the finish, but I didn't give up.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have patience and determine to finish. You'll be glad you did.

I also like the process and the way the QAYG process looks when completed, but I do find it extremely time consuming. I realize that it keeps a person from having to quilt after the project and that is a good thing, but still, find the process more time consuming than I am willing to do a lot of.

It's so funny how our cats always think the new project was made just for them!

Nice. Is it really that difficult? I am considering this class and I am not good at figuring things out.

What lovely fabric, the binding looks nice in a patterned fabric. It makes it look more like part of the bag.

Thanks! I love carrying it. My quilt guild is having our show this September, and I'm going to enter it in the Wearables category. Of course, I'll mention that I made it in Tara's Craftsy class!
