Lunch Bags!  My daughter asked me to make her a bag to carry her lunch in to work.  So after a few minutes thinking and discussing what she wanted we came up with an idea, another hour or so later she had her bag, I think she is pleased with it.

I first measured her lunch box adding an inch for fabric and turning etc., the whole thing is a cube, ties have been added to the sides to bring it in a bit but it is deep enough for the lunch box, her drink and any fruit she might want to have.  The whole thing can just be put in the wash if it gets dirty.

This weeks quilt idea.

I have called this one Spring Tickle, as I have the ticklish fabric collection by Moda to play with.

Above is the block, to which is added 2″ sashing (finished) with corner stones taken from the fabric line.  Border 1 measures 2″ wide (finished – unfinished pieces 21/2″ wide) cut two pieces 54.5″ long and two 58.5″ long piecing to achieve the required length.  Border 2 is again 2″ wide (finished) two pieces 58.5″  long and two 62.5″ long.  Border 3  measures 5″ (finished – unfinished 5.5″) cut two pieces 62.5″ long and two pieces 72.5″ long.
