I've spent the last couple of days making another Weekender bag - this one for my partner in the Sew Sew Modern 2 Swap. This one seemed more difficult than the first one - partly because I tried a new technique, and partly, I think, because I didn't follow the directions as closely. The new-to-me technique was a modified quilt-as-you-go technique. I'm not sure if I like it or not, but I think I will experiment with it some more. Elizabeth Hartman uses a similar technique, but densely quilts over each piece as it is added. I didn't think I wanted that much quilting, but I may try it another time and see.
I started with the Heather Ross vans/campers print, and worked from there. Can you believe I actually used GRAY??? That was a total departure for me, and coming up with enough grays was a challenge. I added some pinks in random places to liven it up a bit.
NOTE TO SELF: The next weekender bag is for me!
