Quilt 2: Finished

25 05 2007

When I attended the quilting workshop a month ago, I purchased one of Michelle’s kits. This was for a quilted tote bag to cart around all that awkward quilting gear, such as cutting mats, long rulers, roller cutters etc. Well, I finished it earlier this week! The front section has a long deep pocket in the centre for the ruler (behind the ‘quilting angel’), with two side pockets for tools, and the main bag takes a full 24″ cutting mat. I was quite pleased with it – especially as the stippling surrounding the angel is the first I’ve ever done. BTW, the little leaves are metallic gold maple leaves, which I thought matched the autumnal tones of this piece quite nicely.
