Another "Curve Appeal" - I love finding the two or three patterns to put together for these bags - I especially like the greens and paisley in the bag.
Gone as quick as it's done - I actually cut out the fabric several months ago when I was working on all those bags for the ladies at my hubby's office - but having finished all those and gotten side track on other items, this one got put aside. Then a couple of weeks ago I personalized a couple of towels for friend and thought she might like one of these and I could (should) finally get around to finishing this one. I thought the material suits her well and she seemed to like it when I gave it to her.
There is a little gold sparkle in the material so I thought gold embbroidery thread for the quilting would be great and I am very pleased with the affect. I couldn't find a paisely quilt design I liked so I created a simple outline design from a more complicated embroidery design I saw. That is in the top ody of the bag, the lower body is a geometric quilting design from a Dakota Designs CD purchased.
