This morning I finished Bag #4 in the Quiltsmart Midi Bag series. I really enjoy this bag!
Mary Keenan gave the the fabric to make this bag, as I am going to teach a class in how to make this bag at her quilt shop in August. It turned out very well. We are both happy with it. It's now hers.
Here's another view:
I learned a lot making this bag and am understanding the pattern much better. I drew out a sketch that shows how the four panels relate, to help in placement of the squares. Here's the schematic:
This shows which square of the four panels will attach to which square of the adjacent panel. By charting this out I was able to plan which squares should go where in each of the four panels. I'm very happy with the result. So is Mary.
Of course, now I have an idea for another variation of this pattern!
