New Bags

Sorry I'm late today. I've been finishing up a new bag.
I've had this upholstery fabric for a couple of months and am just now getting to it. I bought it with the intention of make it into bags and this is my first. I tried really hard not to butch the fabric, but I wanted some of the flowers to be whole. I have another pattern up my sleeve for a tote.
I am in kind of a rush because I have an appointment with a local shop to sell my wares. I had taken in my leftover diaper bags and have sold some. So I wanted to bring in something different.

At the same time I bought the other fabric, I bought this one too. I had already made myself a bag out of this fabric because the colors are so me and go with almost all my clothes. But that other bag is looking good too!
I finished up the little girl quilt and because I had a bigger border, I quilted "What are girls made of?" Then I had a fancy heart stencil and used that on two sides.
The scrap quilt is just quilted in a grid. Nothing fancy, but I love the simple look of this one.
Ok, I'm off. I need to get ready and calm my nerves. These things get me all in a tizzy.
So take care and I'll be back tomorrow.

Catching up with what you have been up too.
Great looking bags.
Not so sure about some of those lemons. lol
I wonder if they are like some of the grape fruit I have. Hard as rock skins but inside fresh and juicy as ever.
