Except I'm not going anywhere. And the only connection between these two bags is that they are no longer UFO's. The bag on the left, the Aeroplane Bag, is for John's sister Chris to celebrate her last Christmas as a teacher. The retro bag on the right is from Stitch magazine.
Chris chose her body fabric from my stash, a piece that I'm pretty sure one of my guildsters gave me. We paired it with a brown Kona Espresso for the base, and the Monday Good Quilting Fairy Eileen cut me a piece of her Kona Pomegranate for that wonderful accent.
I thought I would get to this on one of my sewing retreats, especially since all parts were ready for assembly. Thanksgiving morning turned out to be the perfect time to finish this. And Chris was our guest at dinner. Excellent timing.
