Spinning Spiral Flower Bag and Quilted Reflection Bag - Project Quilting - Challenge Six

I made one large bag and one small bag.  I did the mosaic so you can see both sides of the bag.  Top Left - close up of the large spinning spiral flower.  Bottom Left  - one side of the bag with the three flowers and the quilted reflection bag.  Top Right - the large spinning flower and the refection bag.  Bottom Right  - view of the bottom of the bag, so you can see the connection of the stem from one side of the bag to the other side of the bag.

For challenge six, I used two large scale print fabrics (more than 1/8th of a yard of each one) and some stripes and plaids.  I cut them all up into skinny strips and made the four spinning spiral flowers - a large flower on one side and three smaller flowers on the other side.      So I took a large scale print fabric and cut it up and then turned it back into a large scale print fabric by raw edge appliqueing the flowers on the yellow fabric. Then I quilted it with swirls and wiggle lines and constructed a HUGE Bag from the quilted fabric. I also quilted some extra yellow fabric and made a "quilted reflection" of the large bag.  




















I put two regular size pillows in the bag and took the photos and then I took a picture with only one pillow in the bag.  It is a HUGE Bag!















There are no raw edges on the inside of the bag.  I bound the seams with the yellow binding too.




Here's Gabby with the huge bag.  Makes her look small.
