Quilting Project #2

February 5, 2012 at 2:31 am 2 comments

I finished my second ever quilting project recently!

Actually, I finished it about a week ago, but I forgot to post about it. Ehehe..

This was project #2 in my quilting 101 book: a hand-appliqued quilted zipper bag.
I used bits of scrap fabric that I had lying around, so it’s a bit of a mishmash of fabrics. I made it as more of a practice exercise rather than any great need for a quilted zipper bag. It was good practice though! It was the first time I’ve ever sewn anything with a zipper. I sewed it wrong the first time and had to take the stitches out and do it again. Ha! Live and learn! Like I said, it was good practice.

Now don’t you all wish you had a hand appliqued quilted zipper bag as nifty as this one?! 😀

    Great quilted zipper bag! I am inspired. You look like a pro! 🙂 I’m a beginner at sewing, and LOVE cooking and baking healthy food. Just found your blog (granola bars on Pinterest), really like it, and I look forward to visiting.

      Thanks! I’m a complete newbie at sewing and quilting as well, and believe me, there were several mistakes involved! I’m happy to have provided you with some inspiration though. 🙂
      I’m glad you like my site, and I hope you’ll find some recipes to try out!
