This was a free pattern that a cyber friend shared with me. I just love this design, and hope to make another larger one for a Quilt of Valor this year. Another Susan sent the pattern to Ellen P., and Ellen sent it to me! (The original top is in the StashBuster Photo Album dated Feb 11-20 2009 and was made by Susan-msbooties!)
I'm saving handwork to participate in the Stitch Olympics! These potholders are like the 2 I made for my brother-in-law out of scraps of his Christmas MU quilt. He opened the potholders first. When he opened the extra large quilt, I told him I made it from leftovers of the potholders!! The one on the left has a "M" stitched in the lower left corner.
These are a few of the bags I'm making in different sizes. The gray one is the size of the original pattern from AllPeopleQuilt called "Grab Bag." The smallest golfer one is for my sister-in-law who never carries a purse, but I'm hoping she will use this while out on the course!
This design was recently asked about in one of my online quilting groups. This is my version--nothing within the block necessarily lines up, but the pieced blocks and tan squares DO match!! My version of quick sewing. The overall look without the precise workmanship. Fast and fun!
