There's just something lovely about combining quilting cottons with linen, especially when they're shades of blue. I find it irresistible. Every time I make a project with linen, I want to make all future projects in linen. I love it that much!
Along with changing the basic design into patchwork, I also lined and quilted the bag.
One of my favourite features? Using the lovely blue cotton I received from Nicolette, to make binding for finishing the seams and for the lining of the bag. I have been waiting for just the right project to use some of her gifted fabric. Thank you, my friend!
From a friendship started in blog land, I learned that Nicolette shares my love of the colour blue, linen and patchwork and quilting. It seems only fitting that I call this new version, "Nicolette".
