One of my friends has been very generous to me over the past week, and I thought she deserved a little treat. This beautiful Lecien print (part of the "Vintage Floral" collection, bought from Sew and So's of Bungay) looked perfect teamed with some velvet ribbon trimmed lace that I'd bought from Little A Designs. Once again I used the pattern "Anna's Sminkepung" by the Norwegian designer AnnAKa. This was quilted very simply - a cross hatch design on the back of the bag (I didn't even need to mark the quilting lines for this, I just followed the grid design that is part of the pattern on the fabric!) and quilted in simple straight rows on the front part of the bag. I used a variegated king Tut thread shade 979 for the quilting, and a Schmetz top stitch needle size 80. This will be delivered to my friend tomorrow, I just hope she likes it!!
