A Quilter's Dream at Quilt Expo

 I posed for several photos with my quilts at Quilt Expo this year, but this was the only one I could find on FaceBook.  That's me in the red shirt helping to hang the show.

I had to sit on my hands to resist typing "does my bum make this quilt look fat" in the comment section!

I had the pleasure of working with Stephanie Prescott in her booth "A Quilter's Dream" this year.  She has fabulous quilt and bag patterns and designs some lovely batiks.  I made this bag from her pattern "Metropolis" using her batiks for the buildings.  The sky fabric came from my stash.  

It was easy peasy to make -- the directions are very good.  Of course, I had to modify it a bit -- I added the extra pocket inside the large one -- for keys or a cell phone, and I added a magnetic snap for closure.

And this is me with Stephanie.

Looks like you had a very enjoyable time at Expo. When did you find time to sew a bag?
