Inspired by the Plain Spoken quilt in this fabulous book, I thought I would see what it would look like in purse form. My husband says it looks granola(earthy) or very 70's. He also said he wouldn't carry it...for which I am very thankful! (he's funny, that guy!) I really like how the purse turned out. I am glad that I finally got around to making this since the idea had been rattling around in my head for several days. And it will match my brown courdruy winter jacket quite nicely. :0)

I made this for the craft show I am doing in one week. I can't wait until the show is over so I can sew for fun again. I have also been making quilted baby bibs, place mats, more bags and quilts (for the show and for a very special friend that I will be seeing soon...hopefully). It has been quilting madness around here for the past several weeks. Fun, but I am ready to be able to quilt leisurely again. Or sit around and read all day. That would be lovely!
