Gift bag challenge
I was asked to write up the guidelines, and then Paula gave me a bag to come up with a sample. Bless her, she chose a bag that's purple, blue, and pink florals. I noticed some lacy bits about the edges, too, which made me think of my stash of hankies. I got a few out and incorporated them into this table topper. I made a few dimensional flowers as accents and also machine quilted it. It will be nice on a hall table. The original challenge had everyone buying a bag from the guild, but we decided it would be just as much fun if everyone brought in a medium (not too big, not to tiny) gift bag. We'll put them into plain brown bags and let people draw them so it will be a real challenge. At least the final product doesn't have to be very big!
