A few months ago at the LAMQG swap, I received from my partner, Jamie, a most adorable project bag for carrying around portable projects. I use it all the time and love it so much that I figured I needed a few more.
That same meeting I also won a door prize... A scrap box from Robert Kaufman.. Strips of scraps mostly in black and whites.
None of the patterns (other than the obvious polka dots) really fired my creative engine, but I liked them as a whole. So the other night, I strip pieced them together and made these two bags. The gradient bag has a zipper at the top and is big enough to hold my huge paper piecing quilt top. The other drawstring bag was perfect for carting my supplies yesterday to and from the Denyse Schmidt quilting workshop I took. More on that adventure later!
