One for me!

 Another bag from this 'On the Move' Moda Bakeshop pattern, also made with the same Sandy Gervais 'Frolic' fabrics as the previous my 'enjoying-a-weekend-of-peace-and-quiet' delirium (and probably because I was watching a movie at the same time so not concentrating properly) I made a 'variation' of the pattern (ten points if you can spot where I went wrong) but I had planned to keep this one for myself anyway to use to carry my teaching gear to school each day as I love the colours.

An up-close of the free-motion quilting, using a variegated thread,
and a different pattern on each fabric...
...more FMQ...
simple straight line edging on the small panels.

And I spent the first day of the holidays catching up on pre-washing and ironing the pile of new fabrics I've built up over the past few months...boy, the plans I have for this lot!
