Every time I quilt something I am grateful for the sewing machine I successfully use for free motion quilting. I am grateful to two men. They did not even know what quilting was but they recommended me and brought my dream sewing machine to my home. It happened a few years ago. In a few occasions I told you about my sewing machines, these days I try to put together a “recipe” that will make you fall in love with free motion quilting.
So I stitched these thinking of them!
I used this pattern, but without thinking of measurements. I randomly cut pieces of fabric, added batting and quilted.
Then I added the zippers…
…and then I created the wide boxed bottoms, cutting away 2” and 2 1/2” squares from the corners. I love this shape.
And these are two quilted drawstring bags; I thought that it is so easy for a busy mom to wash these bags. As they are quilted, they don’t need pressing!
Sometimes batting is better than interfacing!
