On the left is the back, on the right is the front. I love it. This purse will be similar in design to the Nana Purse. I haven't decided on a closure yet. I am thinking maybe a magnetic catch or velcro for mom. I may call and ask her.
I am thinking that this pattern would make an awesome quilt.

I love using the buttonhole feature and sewing on buttons with a machine. I have used a button on every purse so far. Maybe I should branch out and try some velcro or a zipper. I really think a button makes it pop a little bit more though.
Oh yes, it is lined in gray to make it easier to find things inside. And there are two pockets inside-done in the dotted fabric, just for fun.

Another friend and co-worker, Judy, told me that she was teaching a class on quilting. Judy's class was on Paper Foundation Piecing(PFP). I took the basic class and decided that "Hey, I can do this!" So, I signed up for the next class Judy was teaching. That class, PFP II, got us started on this table runner. Today I finished the table runner and I am thrilled with the work I did. I am planning to try my hand at a quilt next. Wish me luck!
