Fat Quarter Shop recently released a new pattern called Star Crossed based on an antique quilt they loved. I'm a sucker for a good star quilt block and took the chance to make up one Star Crossed block and use it as the front panel of a new bag.
I wanted a large bag to use during the summer months for picnics and going to the lake and pool and pot luck dinners and all of those summery things. This bag certainly fits that bill. And the fact that I cut up a leather jacket that I found at a thrift store for the bottom, top and handles assures that this sturdy bag will last for many summers to come.
A new summer bag is now checked off my list. I think a scrappy Star Crossed quilt just got added.
