What a good feeling Sunday afternoon to pull the fabrics and pattern for the Mini Bow Tucks purse out and get started. I got all the pieces cut and the fusible batting ironed on the pieces that needed it and started quilting the bag lining. I showed the fabrics I selected for this purse on this blog entry.
The pattern said it didn't have to be quilted much but since I had been away from my machine so long I decided the lining to my purse was going to be heavily quilted. As you can see from the two sides below I do need more practice as there are lots of jiggles, wayward stitching lines and non-uniform shapes. I decided this was the inside so what ever I quilted was going to stay and just enjoyed the process. I quilted a feather design on one side and bubbles on the other. The quilting thread I used on these two panels is King Tut color # 930 on the top and Bottom Line color # 653 in the bobbin - both are by Superior Threads.
Now to quilt the outside of the purse today. Don't think I will do as much quilting on those pieces as the fabrics are busy patterned fabrics and the quilting wouldn't show much anyway.
I am so happy to be home now and sewing!!!!!!
