Half Square triangles will TRAVEL!

I used some Leftover blocks from this quilt to make a bag!

Well....truthfully...it's still a QUILT TOP!!!
But...
One of these days...
it'll be quilted!!!
;)
I hope.



I WAS going to make this gift a potholder gift
like the ones I made last week.
But....
My daughter recommended making a little bag instead.
I'm GLAD she did!
I love it!

I first quilted the outside with some diagonal lines.. 
and then...
added the zipper and lining.

Very simple.
Very sweet.

My orphan blocks DID it AGAIN!
I was also able to use some Orphan batting... LOL!!!
I sure have a LOT of little pieces around here!!!!

I'm imagining these half square triangles traveling
FAR and WIDE with their new owner!!!
She just returned from a big trip to AFRICA!
Who knows where she'll be off to next????
