I have pictures of my quilt and the bag I made today!!

Hi everyone, Yesterday I finished my Whirlygiggles quilt. I really like it. It looks much better in person. I glad I can finally share it with you.
I also finished two bags to give the kids teachers as gifts. I only have pictures of the first one I finished. I show you the pictures of the other bags tomorrow. The first one I made is for my middle guys teacher. She is expecting a baby this summer. So, I thought I would make her a big bag to use as a diaper bag or just a carry all bag. I kept it really simple. It's a very bright bag because I used the fabric "Snippets" by American Jane. I thought it was appropriate for a baby bag. I made the handles long. His teacher is quite tall. So I hope that she likes that. She will be able to have it over her shoulder. I made the straps wide as well. I used a big white vintage button that I got from the thrift shop. It really goes well with this bag.

I hope you like my projects. It felt like I sewed all day. But I'm glad I got lots accomplished. Have a great day.
Happy Stitching!!

your quilt looks fabulous!
I couldn't blow up your pics...did you stitch in the ditch? And what did you do around your appliques? did you blanket stitch them or outline them?
Your bag is awesome! Any new mama would love a bag like that!

They both turned out so beautifully. Everything you do does! The teachers will be absolutely thrilled with their bags. I really need to find the time to make myself a bag.

The quilt looks beautiful, well done! I particularly like the little birds in the border. Loving those fabrics in the tote bag too.
