My fabric challenge project!

I'm sure that most of your remember my "Quilting in the Pines" retreat back in February.  If you don't remember, you can go back HERE to read all about it.  When we registered, we each got 1/2 yd of fabric for the challenge.  You could make a quilt or an "other" project.  I decided to go with the "other" category.


This photo shows all of the pouches (4 in all, one is not pictured) inside the tote.  I even made a phone pocket!


One can never have to many pouches.


Here is a family portrait! The orange print fabric was the challenge fabric.  There is a lot of fussy cutting here.  I quilted the tote around each motif, and each pouch is also quilted around the motif. The green flower print is quilted in FMQ flowers. 


Open wide!


It is amazing how the light changes the color of fabrics.  Those flowers are the same green ones shown above.

No, I didn't win...but got a $10 gift certificate to our LQS for entering!

Oooooo these are amazing, makes me reflect on the disaster that is my purse, I feel inspired to make some to create order in the chaos of my bag.
