Bag - tutorial by Laura and Linda Kemshall

I'm in XMas mood. the weekend was perfect for that: 3 days at home, the weather from not that bad to completely insane.
I had seen this tutorial in Quilting Arts Gifts Winter 2008, and had wanted to make it, just had to find the time.
So it started with a square sandwich (lining, batting, support fabric, pieces and bits of fabrics, covered with chiffon.
I wanted to quilt it "kantha-like", with a fine yellow conton perlé. Ouch, it is pretty, but my fingers were a bit sore at the end :-)
Once the quilting was finished, I grabbed my machine to do a bit of embroidery:

Then folded the square into a triangle, kind of

for the trim, I used a bias, adorned with buit-in stitches.
