I am making this bag for the quilt group christmas swap.  The pattern is from a Country Threads magazine of a few years ago.  We are each making a bag of our choice to swap for the gift. I finally had a go at stitching the quilting with pearl cotton and a large milliners needle,  the quilting was quickly finished.  
The next block for my butterfly garden quilt arrived in the post today - so I am looking forward to stitching it together now.

This bag is so beautiful, you did a great job and I love your fabrics ;>)
One of these days, I'd also like to have a go on the big stitch quilting with perle coton. I've seen that Leanne Beasley uses it quite often. My next spring quilt will be her "Flowers & Flutterbys" pattern, and I'll take the opportunity...
Can't wait seeing your Butterfly quilt blocks.

Have a nice weekend,
Enjoy your sewing !
