The purse pattern is called the "Rachel Bag" and comes from the book "Bag Boutique". I have made this bag a few times since it is easy to do, roomy, and looks great with large scale prints. For this auction I toned down my normal screaming colors so it would be more acceptable to the masses......what to you think?
If you are thinking that you have seen this fabric before, you're right!!! I used it in my Storm at Sea quilt. Since I orginally planned to make that quilt bed sized, I have lots leftover. And I decided to give the quilt to my inlaws for their anniversary! I think they'll like it, don't you.
I did two more Farmer's Wife blocks too.....they get kind of addicting because they have such cool names. Plus I only have to make one of each block so I can't get bored. That's a problem when you have to make 20 of the same kind of block with the same exact fabric in the same exact places....it becomes boringggggg. Probably explains why I am a scrap quilt junkie.
This one is called "Buckwheat"......interesting huh.......
And this is "Butterfly in the Crossroads", now this one I can visualize better. My butterfly is supposed to be a monarch. I grow milkweek every year in my garden so the monarches will come and lay eggs. Then I get to see the catapillars become butterflies. I love that. I did notice we did not have very many monarches last year compared to in the past. Hope this year there are more of them.
Time to get moving.......have a great day and I will let you know if I win anything at the silent auction.
