 I took a Beach Bag class today at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Above, Barb R. teaches us how to make this adorable bag.  My apologies! Barb's last name is Hassenrik, and does not begin with an R? So sorry Barb.

Sheryl took the class too.  Above she shows that she has a good start on her bag.  She said the bag is for her daughter who picked out the fabrics.  Wish I could have stayed longer and gotten a picture of her finished bag, but I had to scoot out due to a previous appointment.

 I feel I have to post this picture since the ladies complained that they all had to have their picture on the blog and I should too.  How do you like my beach bag?

 This is a closeup of my bag.  It really is a quick-to-make bag.  It took us just a little over two hours.  The nice thing was that everything that you need (except the outside fabric) is in a kit that I purchased at the shop.  The Fast & Easy Mesh Bag Kit includes mesh, lining fabric, webbing, Fast & Easy pattern and a handy little bag.
Barb is a new teacher at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  You won't be disappointed when you take one of her classes.  Today she was filled with helpful tips and techniques for making this beach bag.

  • Quilt exhibit at St. Patrick's Church, Parnell on Sunday, June 26, from 12:30-5 p.m. The exhibit is during the parish festival and the quilts are inside the church.  Denice Barker, who told me about this event, said she is naming the show "Blessed Are The Piecemakers.  She said that the people contributing are people from the parish, my friends, and local quilters from Lowell.

REALLY cute bag! I'm sure it would take me two days, not two hours, though.
