Quilted Stitch Bag : :

Stitch Quilted Bag

Have you seen the new fabric line Stitch Organic by Betz White? In Betz's words, "Stitch is inspired by all types of stitchers and the beautiful handiwork created by them." This collection is completely made up of stitching inspired motifs, including chevrons and hexies, and is GOTS certified organic!

When this bundle of Stitch fabrics arrived from Betz, I new right away I wanted to make myself a bag with them. Something extra large and over-sized for toting to the fabric store or for carrying several skeins of yarn and/or large hand work projects for some upcoming long road trips.

I let my favorite floral print be the main fabric for my new bag. I love this color blue, Betz's sweet flowers, and the chain stitch detail in this print. Isn't it lovely?

I added a thick layer of soft batting between the outside patchwork and hexie print lining, and then I machine quilted with simple, wavy lines.

I'm using my bag for just about everything this past week. I really do love it, as well as these Stitch fabrics! They were wonderful to work with! If you're loving them too, you can find all the "where to buy" info on the Stitch Info page. My sponsor the Fat Quarter Shop carries the entire collection here!

  10. Please don't laugh (although I admit it is a slightly funny question), but did you drop your feet when you did the wavy lines or leave them up like when you quilt straight lines? I'm new - can you tell?!

  11. The bag pattern is something I'm working on. It will either be a pattern or a free tutorial, possibly as part of the design team for Riley Blake!

  18. I completely agree with you. That blue floral print is the best. It has a sort of Jacobean look to it.
