Robinson Order

 Happy Tuesday! I hope you are all doing swell. So, here is another order I finished yesterday. It is a Stu as a diaper bag and a diaper changing pad or wall hanging. OK, this mom decorated her son's nursery in patriotic red white and blue. She loves the American flag. So I went with that.

 I pieced little stars for the sides of the bag with red and white stripes.

 I quilted the bag with a fabulous blue cotton thread. My fancy Bernina 820 HATES this Prescencia thread, but my older more worldly Bernina didn't mind it at all.

 I made an extra pocket panel inside this bag so she has tons of little spaces for all the hoo haa that goes along with babies in their diaper bags. I used to have my diaper packed to the gills, but everything was organized in it's special pocket so I knew where everything was at any time.

 So, I wanted to make a flag for this mom...but I didn't want all the work of making 50 tiny stars, so I went with this design. You can make one too! I will have the tutorial over on my other blog Tia Curtis Quilts
 I quilted a bunch of stars in the background.

See, I have been working pretty hard lately on bags. I have all the uniforms that have been sent to me cup and ready to make into bags. It is my fantasy to have them all finished before I leave for quilt market.

Have a great day!

Well Tia, as you know, I am completely totally and utterly in love with this. Can I post a pic of it on my blog and link back to you? I've made a pillow as good as identical to this from Etchings wovens in grey, red and cream. Thank you so much for the wonderful inspiration.
