My wonderful friend Amy was at her LQS and stumbled upon my bag pattern! Esther's Fabrics on Bainbridge Island has made up a beautiful sample in a green corduroy with mixed pattern and color petals. The petals really pop on this dark background.
Mary Abreu of Confessions of a Craft Addict and the amazing author of Little Girls, Big Style has been a Twitter friend for almost a year now, but we finally met in person at Fall Quilt Market '10 in Houston. She's just as sweet in person as she is online. She picked up my pattern at market and this is her version blogged here. Ummmm, PURPLE and green??!!! LOVE! I can just imagine that bright bag on my shoulder coaxing Spring from every little petal.
This little beauty is from my amazing Give-Away winner Joanna. I sent her a kit for the bag and she added her own fabrics and her own touch to make this super dotty bag that she blogged here, here and here. Her echo quilting is fantastic. Go visit her blog if you love bright applique. Joanna is prolific and I love her aesthetic so very much!
If you've made a Petal Blossom Bag, add it to the Flickr Group! I would LOVE to see what you've made. I will be creating some new samples in my own fabric (EEEEK!!!) for quilt market. I've also received some very sweet emails regarding kits. The answer is YES, kits will be coming in the future. Right now I am off to work on the two new patterns I will be releasing with Indygo Junction at Spring Quilt Market '11 in Salt Lake City in May! Another EEEEK!!!
