Star Light, Star Bright - a BIG quilted bag

I finished my giant quilted bag.  it's called Star Light Star Bright.  It's a really old pattern from the Button Bush Quilt company.  

See, guilds are starting up soon, and I mentioned before that my friend Connie F. came to guild last spring with her big quilted bag.   The minute I saw it,  I knew I wanted to cross this project off my list. I had a kit cut for this and it had been stashed away for a long time.    After seeing Connie's bag, I took the kit out and so it was top of mind when I was looking for something to work on.      

With all my pickling done, and routines seem to be getting back to normal, I decided to spend a few hours and finish my big bag.   I finished machine quilting the back of the bag and last night I hand sewed  the buttons on last evening.  I really like it.   There's a little more hand embroidery to do, but I'll do it when I get a chance.  Or maybe not.   I like it the way it is.

Now I'm starting to put things in it so I remember to take to my two up-coming guild meetings.
