Next I needed to quilt my lines onto the bag. I decided to go with diagonal lines 1” apart. I used my ruler and drew lines with a water soluble pen to make sure that all my lines would be sewn straight and even. I am sure that this probably is not the proper way to do this but it worked for me. Of course right after I finished doing this, I noticed that my new sewing machine comes with a special quilters foot that has a guide on the side of it to space your lines.
I did run into one small problem with this project. For some reason, my lining was way bigger than the outer bag. I’m sure that it wasn’t the tutorial. I must have done something wrong. I just trimmed about and inch off of the top and sewed my side seam in a little more and it worked out great.
I am really happy with the finished product. Not to bad for my first quilting experience.
Many thanks to Kelly at Make! Her tutorial was very fun and easy to follow. I can’t wait to make the accessories to go with it.
