Bags and Blocks

Sometimes I am called the 'bag lady' because of all the bags that I make.  I don't know what I am going to do with them all but I use them now and then.  I will have one for every season if not every month.

This is the Tahoe Bag.
I bought the pattern when I was in
Lake Tahoe for my sister's wedding
last November.

We were leaving the quilt shop
when I spotted it so I bought it in that shop and 
purchased the fabric in another shop there.

I made another Quilter's Carry All two thirds
the size that the pattern calls for.
I also made the front panel into a pocket.  I made
it just like the pattern but sewed it onto the main
bag instead of making it part of the bag.  The back of the bag
has the same panel but is not a pocket.
I am taking this bag on my next trip to
Europe in September.
It will make a good carry on bag for the 

Two more of my Irish Quilt Blocks finished.
I am up to date on them now just waiting for 
McCall's Quilting to post the last 5.  I am ready
when ever they get posted.
