My first bag

Last Friday I did the bag making workshop at The Quilters Corner. It was great, I will definitely do another workshop there!
I finished the bag yesterday:

I'm rather proud of it! :-)
It's a Monica Poole design, the large travelling bag. I wanted a large bag and apparently chose the most difficult one to make. I'm sure it will be the first of many!

I also found a quiltgroup: Patch 'n' Chat in Ferny Hills. Went there last week and it was lovely, so I will join them!

This week I hope to finish the first baby quilt (I am now trying to do some free motion quilting on it...) and start the next... And I also want to do a ragtime flannel quilt to put on our laps in the evening when we watch dvd's - it's cold now in the Queensland winter!

So... better stop blogging and start quilting! ;-)

Love your bag - you must also try the Bow Bag, Liisa also teaches this one. I'm overseas on holiday, have shown your picture around and all here are very envious that we have such wonderful teachers and supplies in Australia.. keep up the lovely sewing, great blog!
