quilt bag

I had been wondering how to wrap/package my quilt that has been sold to a local customer when I came up with the idea of piecing serging together precut squares to make a drawstring tote bag.  Another way to use up the fabrics that represent the farmhouse way of living.
"use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without".

I like this bag so much I just may make several and have them ready to wrap/package all my quilts.

Lisa that is just wonderful! Really - all quilts should have their own beautiful patchwork bag. What a nice touch for your customer. Now, to go see if I can find a picture of the quilt that you have peeking out of there.

Hi Lara,
Thanks for the compliment. The quilt is the kaleidoscope in the preceding blog post. A local customer, a woman I used to work with, purchased it and I wanted to present it in a nice way when I deliver it. I kinda like the idea of shipping all my quilts in its own bag as well. A little extra gift.
Thanks again,
