Log Cabin Bag


I was looking at Carol Casper's fab patchwork blocks the other day and telling her about my struggle with log cabin patchwork.
I enjoy patchwork but I'm not that good at it.
However, I have finished my project - yippee!
Well I still want to add some buttons to the bottom of the handles.

The bag is to carry my over large cutting board and quilters rulers.
I am very happy with it despite it not being perfect.
Some blocks are a little twisted and there are a few gathers in the quilting.
But hey, it is mine and a labour of love and no body will get it mixed up with their own ;0)


By the way I'm not apologising for the bad photos - they hide the bad workmanship LOL!

Very pretty! The block on the upper left in the first pic is done perfectly for the lights and darks.

You'll be a professional patchworker soon....*S*

I think it is beautiful. Far more
than I could do. The colors are
stunning. Don't point out the
boo-boo"s, nobody will know. They will be entranced just looking at the bag.

I love your bag Alis and it will be very useful. I think I need to make one of those and I'm not a quilter either I'm afraid.
