I am so happy to have finished this gift project. The colors are just right for the approaching summer season. The front is made with a Susan Sargent remnant and the back is a collage of luscious scraps rescued from a friend’s pillow project waste pile. And in case you can’t see it in these photos, the handles are made from Laurel Birch happy dog-print fabric.
Here’s my freeform quilting on the back, in keeping with a lush pink theme.
A total of seven different fabric panels are used, including a 4-fabrics pocketed interior in complementary prints. The front and back panels and handbag straps are padded with cotton/poly quilt batting.
