I thought I felt someone staring at me while I was sewing and I turned around to see WillieNo peeking out from inside my Quilt Bag of Requirement. He's always watching, waiting for........
a lap whatelse. It really doesn't matter whose lap.
When I called my Mom to tell her I finished this bag, she asked "How big is it?" My response, "Well, its as big as you need it to be". Thus the name.
I wish I had a Room of Requirement, that had big empty design walls and light from every angle, oh and a hot tub for when I'm machine quilting on my Bernina...and. cabana boy and a chef.... hmmm Right away please!
I made this bag with fabric purchased from Beyond the Reef http://www.beyondthereefpatterns.com/ last year at PQIF.
You can find this pattern at http://figtreequilts.com/ My Paris Traveler's Bag. Pattern is easy to follow and the best part is the zipper! Cuz normally we hates the zippers.
Well I just love the bag and it is absolutely huge. Don't worry I can fill it, you can count on me.
Many quilt stores are giving special perks to shoppers who use their own bags. Last Sunday I was entered in a drawing at The Calico House in Brea, California and the week before in the The Quilting Bee in Orange, California. It would be a great story if I said I won the drawings ;] .... I still might.
Have a wonderful weekend!
