Liberated Purse 1
Made this purse of my own design after learning the quilt-as-you-go technique in this tutorial by Chase (aka quarter inch mark):
Also learned a LOT about quilt as you go from Penny at:
This bag was also inspired by the many other talented sewists here on Flickr who have also made Quilt As You Go bags with modern Japanese fabrics.
