Botany Blues Bag

I finished all the blocks for the blue strip twist quilt Friday night and yesterday I got the two borders, backing and binding all cut out and bagged and ready to take to the CQU quilt retreat next weekend.  I had some cute scraps leftover from cutting those strips so, I pieced them all together, quilted it, and along with a cute pair of navy handles and a big vintage navy button I had in my stash, I made myself a new purse!!

I HEART these fabrics!!  But for some
weird reason the colors just don't
photograph true to life!  ACK!!

I had 2 strip twist blocks extra, so I
used one for a pocket on the back.

And I used the other one for a pocket
on the inside along with some other
scraps for a smaller cell phone pocket.

So, I'm off to bind my Caliente Poppies quilt! 
 I'll post about it soon!  :-)
Did you have a creative weekend?


  1. Wow, I love this bag! Great fabrics.

  2. Fantastic bag!! Love the colors too!!

  3. What a fun purse!! Do you have a special closet for all the purses and bags you make? :)


  4. I love how you just whip up a new purse from your leftovers...and it looks fab. I think you were a purse designer in a former life...or your next...chez kool!

  5. I love these fabrics too, yum yum yum! Your bag is way too cute!

  6. Love the colours of your gorgeous new bag.

    I spent a lovely time in Perth with my DD2 and GC. We went to "Cats". Spent time playing games and sewing too.

    On my return home I received your pattern for the "Tuffets". Thank you so much, Polly.

  7. Now I am jealous! I need to get sewing on a new bag. I worked on a scruffily quilt, but have not posted it yet.


Thank you sooooooo very much for taking the time to leave a comment! I am always happy to know that someone is reading my ramblings!! Polly :-)
