If you're one of those people (and I'm beginning to think that means EVERYONE) who hates honey-oak trim, beige carpet and white walls - well - you're not going to like it at my house. But to me, it's a gallery space with warmth and a place where every color looks just right.
See more from my photo shoot over at the MMQG blog where I posted this week about hanging and displaying quilts.
If you're sticking around to admire that purse in the photo, however, welcome! I got it in the Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild's bag swap at our February meeting. A talented gal named Rozina made it and I couldn't love it more. I immediately dumped the contents of my purse into it, threw it over my shoulder and haven't looked back.
Here's the one I made:
It's from the Tohoku Tote pattern/tutorial by Cheri at her "I am Momma, Hear me Roar"blog.
I followed the pattern except for adding this internal zipper pocket. I found this tutorial helpful.
The prints are from IKEA; the black is duck cloth from JoAnn Fabric but I didn't like the way it faded when I ironed it. All in all a fun swap. We're doing name tags next. Stay tuned!
