What are you most proud of? Figuring out how to sew on the zipper - it's been a long time! I could not understand the directions so went to YouTube and quickly found a demo that worked just fine!! I had to go back and make the zipper tighter and fix a few things, but I like the final product. I'm making one for each of my two sisters. My younger sister liked the colors in the little cell phone holder I posted some time ago, so I used the same ones for her bag. Also like that the directions called for using denim for the batting to give the bag some heft. I cut up an old pair of blue jeans and recylced the cloth.... funny to think of them in this pretty little bag!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I did not do the quilting the way they suggested because I could not figure out how to draw the lines. So I just started with a good angle and then used my pressure foot as a guide to judge the distance between the quilting lines. It's not perfect, but I like the look.

Great! It was fun to make and not very hard. If you have any trouble with the zipper I'm sure you can find the tutorials I have used on YouTube!

I posted a new cell phone cover in purple with directions - just search for it and should be able to find it!

where do I get the pattern?

Ah, I think the pattern was part of this page before Craftsy changed the format and it got lost. This can be found in the book: Modern Log Cabin Quilting: 25 Simple Quilts and Patchwork Projects on p. 135. I purchased it - probably on Amazon - and then found out that my local library had a copy. It was worth purchasing - lots of good things to make!
