Crazy Quilting Bag

This is the bag I use every Monday, since more than ten years, when going to our quilting meetings.

When a friend of the quilting group brought one day such a bag, we all fell in love with it and decided that we must absolutely have one similar. The same day I did the pattern and next day I started cutting and sewing with the greatest enthusiasm! 

One week later,  when I brought my bag, all the members of the group ordered one, and then a second one!

The success was such that the orders for this bag extended to other friends, relationships, groups... 
As I love using scraps and mixing all sorts of fabrics, I really enjoyed creating each time a new bag.

You can see on the pictures two inside pockets and a matching needle book.

In the bag is my Log Cabin quilt.
