carry all

This month was the first meeting of the LA Modern Quilt Guild, and I am so excited to be part of this incredibly talented group of women. We all decided that next month we would bring a quilt to share with the group....so naturally my first thought was "I am going to need a carry all bag to drag to and from meetings". I received my new Amy Butler Love fabric last week, and couldn't resist using it for this project.

The pattern used for this bag is from Amy Butler's new Softwares project cd. I fell in love with the pattern because of the two different sized handles, so convenient. The eyelets were not called for in the pattern, I added those on, just to give it a more finished look.

I also love how big it is, measuring 15 x 16.5 inches, when finished. To take the picture, I folded two throw size quilts and stuffed them inside....they both fit in easily. I do think that maybe a large floral pattern might have looked better on this bag, but there's nothing to be done about that now!!


  1. Ooooo, I love that! Do you like the cd as a whole? Lots of good stuff on it? I still need to make the Birdie Sling bag pattern sitting here but I want to shrink it a bit.

    I love the dots too! You can always make another in floral and gift that one for the holidays! :-P

  2. What a fantastic bag!! I jut got some of these spots and cant wait to cut into them!

  3. What a great bag! It looks great in the Love fabrics!


  4. A great bag! I've just got this software and are keen to have a play.

  5. I love anything with practicality!! Two handles=perfect!!
