On a Roll

I seem to be on a roll with these bags. Here is another one made from my spare parts drawer.I decided that this would be a good opportinity to practise some free motion quilting. It's far from perfect but I think it adds to the bag. On this one I needed to spend a bit more time on the marking.

This one is made with a left-over couple from one of my wall hangings. I think they were too small for what I needed at that time.

The quilting on the back of this one is a lot simpler and easier to do.

The colours are way off on my computer. The green looks turquoise but it's actually a kelly green.

FMQ has always been a big stumbling block for me; I know I just need to practice, practice, practice! I love your idea of doing it on something small and useful, like a bag.

Love that one with the people!

Yeah! More bags. You are very productive and it is a wonderful way to utilize spare parts that took quite a while to make in the first place. Your FM quilting is ahead of mine, I do too much stitching in the need to practise.
