WELCOME SUMMER BAG

I love Tilda fabric.  I have a pretty significant stash of it and I keep every little scrap.  I happened on a free pattern at Tilda World in their Blog section for just the perfect large bag.
So lots of cutting out of pieces.  Blocks consisted of one each of  3.5 by 5; 6 by 9; 7.5 by 3.5 and 6 by 3.5 times 12.  
All the block put together and quilted onto a simple muslin backing.
My quilting consisted of a serpentine stitch sewn 1.5 inches apart down the long side of the piece.  I used Frixon pens to keep lines straight.  
Two 26 inch straps made with 4 inch wide pieces.  I love how the handles came out.  You just lay a 3 inch piece of batting, I use Warm and Natural pin, press, and fold in half.
I used a straight stitch down each side and in the middle using 28 wt thread in a blue variegated thread, which was what I used to also quilt the bag.  There is a lining put into it so it has a pretty lining and a pretty Tilda front.   
I have to make another one of these.  A perfect gift for some special person.

  2. I'm not familiar with Tilda fabrics but I'm smitten! They have a wonderful retro/vintage vibe, and such pretty color palettes. I'll bet you're gonna get a lot of use AND a lot of compliments out of that bag.

  3. Hi Donnalee! What a cute bag. When you showed the fabrics all laid out before making the bag itself, it's an interesting pattern. I also have never heard of Tilda fabrics. This bag looks really handy. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Nice bag! For a moment I thought it was the pattern I just used for a gift bag ..... it’s not ..... but the handle looked similar.
    Lovely quilting!
