Quilted Bags & Purses
From large travel bags to small roll-style purses, these 20 patterns include all the carryall styles a quilter could desire, ranging from traditional to shabby chic, and retro to contemporary. Most important, each one showcases the exquisite workmanship and close attention to detail that are the hallmarks of designer and best-selling author Mary Jo Hiney. She offers instructions on how to make pockets, both inside and out; how to put in zippers; how to attach handles; and how to add liners and bindings for the perfect finish. Among the standouts: a brocade bag to hold knitting supplies, a 60’s-style piecework bucket bag, a clutch with traditional quilt block appliqu , and a small wool dachshund-shaped purse that uses Mary Jo’s signature "quiltagami” technique.
