Paper bag swap

My on line stitching group recently had a paper bag swap, how it worked was we each had to send 2 fat quarters, a button and trim in a paper bag to our partner, they then had to make a bag from these goodies. This is the lovely bag I recieved from Jan. I chose martinique fabric and i dyed my trim in coffee as it was really white. The whole bag is beautiful. This is the bag I made for Bec, her fabric was gorgeous. I enjoyed making it.

Tomorrow I'm going on my first quilt camp, a bunch of us Tassie bloggers are getting together at Hagley Farm for 2 days of non stop stitching, sewing and laughter. I can't wait. I'll be back on Sunday with lots of photos to share.
