Scrap Quilt #3

I started this quilt in 2015, right after finishing my last scrap quilt. Then we moved, and all the little squares got packed up. It is 25 blocks of 49 2.5" squares.

The Irish chain design is a little harder to see than I anticipated.

Green Boxy Bag

I made yet another bag! This one will go to the same little girl who is getting the orange purse. My mom got me this green fabric quite a while ago and I've never found enough matching fabrics to turn it into a quilt. The lining fabric matches the handle. The set of vehicle buttons I got for the car boxy bag included planes and trains as well, and I thought this little grey train button matched nicely for the zipper pull.

Finished size: 3.5"H x 4"W x 8.5"L

Blue Heart Bag

Seriously, I can't get enough of this purse! (This is #6.) I love this orange version. It is lined with blue. I would make more with this orange fabric, but I'd need more blue lining fabric. It was surprisingly challenging to find a blue heart button, but I am very pleased with the glitteriness of the one I found. It is going to the little girl who received the blue birds quilt.

Princess Bags

Claire loves princesses. My mom told me they were looking at princess fabric at Joann's and she told Claire that I could make her something with princess fabric. Then I get a text from my sister, "I hear you have princess fabric? Claire needs a bag for all her princesses." I clarified that I did not have princess fabric, but yes, I could make a bag. Julie sent this super cute princess print. We had settled on a wristlet design, but the size of princesses necessitated making the bag a little bigger in order to accommodate all the fabric princesses (hopefully it's big enough for all the princess figurines). When I called Julie to discuss dimensions, she asked Claire, "Do you want one row of princesses or two rows of princesses?" Of course she picked two. Since it was going to be so much bigger than a wristlet, I added d-rings and an optional shoulder strap.

The lining is a pale yellow with a strip of the same star print that's on the outside  
Starting dimensions: 12.5"W x 11"H
Finished size: 12"W x 8"H x 4"D
