Now that all the kids are back in school we can start planning some things we want to do.  Whether it is for Christmas, birthdays, or yourself, you are going to want to make this table topper.  You can have a fun time making this beauty when you take the class with Vickie S. at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  The class is October 16th.  Call the shop to register.
I forgot to show you my finished bag.  Most of the fabrics are from Ethiopia and were given to me by my friend Tsigereda who used to live there.  When she went home for a visit I asked her to bring me back a fat quarter.  Of course, she wondered what a fat quarter was, and I explained that it was a piece of fabric.  She returned to the U.S. with a pile of fabrics that I have cherished over the years.  I recently posted here about making her a quilt from those fabrics.  The above bag was made from the leftover fabrics.  The pattern is Street Strip Bag by Quilted Memories.   I love it.

I've yet to make a NY Beauty, but it's still on my list. I would so take that class if I were any near this shop. Your bag, Caroll, is a beauty all it's own! Those fabrics are fabulous. I love the quilt, I love your bag!
