Last evening a friend, Kausalya made a wonderful pouch with ribbon embroidery. I absolutely loved the pouch she made and on being appreciated she set me up for a healthy challenge: If I made a bag in a day then the pouch would be mine :)
I pounced at the opportunity but what could I possibly make in a day!!

First was of course, a choice of fabric and I decided to use the red fabric that I had won in another challenge from her. Very appropriate for the occasion…

Mosaic Tile A

Then the bag construction per se…

Recently I seem to be obsessing over the quilt block from the Mosaic Block Quilt along. First I made this quilt top, then I made some cushions from the left over quilt blocks and in the same week I tried some more cushions(more on that later!) and now a tote :)

Its made of basic blocks of 8X8″ in red and 8X4″ with 15.5X4″ of grey.

Mosaic Tile B

The bright red is just right for the Valentine’s week!

Mosaic Tile C

The bag is hand quilted with running stitch in Anchor Perl 8- Red and quilted with thin batting which I bought from another friend Shanaz for the quilt top…

Linking it to the Mosaic quilt Along !
