Thanks to you all, I´m happy you like my quilts :blush: :D

@macdoum

I can´t say how much hours it took me - sometime there is time to work a whole afternoon or evening on it, sometimes only an hour or two and then several days no time to work on it at all ...

There are efficient ways to cut (rotary cutter) and sew the fabric, so it looks much more difficult than it is.

The bag is really nice Bea.

I hope to make a nice bag like that sometime -- first I have a couple shopping bags planned -- just a plain square shape out of a couple of old bed spreads and they are so boring I have put them aside. :slap:

In a few months stores here won't be handing out single use plastic bags.

A deer came walking on a rock shelf. Suddenly the shelf became too narrow, and the poor deer fell down six meters :shock: When the guy, that filmed the accident with his mobile phone, went to see, the deer stood up on its feet and ate on a tree. And apparently unharmed it went into the forest..

The plan for my bags is a little different -- a little like an american brown paper bag (I don't know if they are common elsewhere), and some with lining sigh...

I think I should use this pattern for some of them.

Since I am just back from talking about my piece in my guild's quilt show -- here is a photo of my quilt (taken by my dad) in the museum setting. Mine is the bright one in the corner.
