Boro Bags

I teach big stitch hand quilting in my boro bag class at Village Fabric Shop.  It’s a great way to learn the technique without investing a huge amount of time.  You also end up with an awesome little bag.  The pattern is from noodle-head.com.  Best bag patterns ever.  IMG_0452

These boro bags belong to Ann (left) and Jean (right).  Ann used Essex linen and did some piecing to make her panels.  Jean used a fat quarter of the same fabric.

Same bags.  Different sides.  Jean quilted squares.  Ann used different thread colors.  Most of the threads were #8 perle cottons.

Her back.  She used Anna Maria Horner’s wovens and we all loved the result.

Kay’s blocks before she made her bag.  Kay is a very good hand quilter and we loved her patterns.  Unfortunately I didn’t get a shot of her finished bag.  Sorry Kay!  It’s sitting right in the middle of the display below…
