This year as I was blog hopping I came across this link www.fionamarie.com/ and decided that I wanted to participate in the 2010 Christmas swap. The theme was to create a gift bag and place a fat 1/4 of fabric inside. I looked at the links and decided that I wanted to make my own design. I found the pattern in my copy of Homespun Volume 11 Number 9 that had just arrived on my doorstep. The project was titled Teeny Tiny Tote. I then investigoogled and found a free stitchery design at the stitchingcow that was perfect. I used burgundy thread rather then red to match the fabrics that I had used. Now for the fat 1/4 while visiting my local quit shop The Blanket Box I had already chosen and was ready to leave fabric in hand when the gum leaves fabric caught my eye. What a perfect fabric for a new quilt friend who loves green and lives over the other side of the world. Hopefully when they see this fabric in the future it will remind them of a friend down under.
