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.

 

A special thanks to the wonderful Ayumi, who found the red and white "My Recipes," my favorite Suzuko Koseki print, in linen/cotton for me in Tokyo! Thanks also to Paula (paulapatchwork), Ayumi, and Sakizome for giving me many of these incredible prints.
