One of "Burning leaves of Gatlinburg" quilts now belongs to Bonnie

I want to thank one more time every person, who made and mailed me blocks with maple leaves for my project "Burning leaves of Gatlinburg", for my neighbors, who lost their homes in wild fire on November 28th, 2016: Carmela AnjosDawne Johnson Brooks, Glenys Shallard, Pam JohnsonRebecca TuckerPatty Holloway, Sharon Bentle, Diane E. Swett, Leslie Mullins, Virginia Smith, Pamela Barger EdlJean FogleinMary Lou Dagnall'Harolyn Kay FullerJamey HerdLinda Sclare LyonsLisa Centurelli, Judy Ingram, Rae Nichols, Linda Byers, Lynn Buske, Lee WhiteMaureen Trelfer

During the class I was taking at the "Quiltfest" show in Pigeon Forge, 
I met the lady, who belongs to the "Piecemakers" guild, who organize "Quiltfest" show every year, and we know each other for several years. Her name is Bonnie Goolsby. She told me, that she also lost her permanent home in Gatlinburg. All her sewing room, fabrics and supplies are gone too. I can feel her pain. So I immediately decided to give one of this quilts to her. 
She was surprised and glad to have it. I believe she feels the warms of our hearts and hands in this special quilt. Look at it and you might find your block(s) in it! 

Two other quilts are also finished. Just need to make some researches to find out where my other neighbors live now, then schedule a meeting to give them those quilts.

Now in lime and purple

Sometimes you are coming to the store, see the fabric and over sudden fall in love with it! Even the color is not that pretty... Even the price is too high... But you imagine immediately how beautiful it's gonna look in a ready made bag! This is it: lime with purple accents:

I picked green and purple zippers, green and purple matching fabrics for pockets, lime for lining and inside pockets lining.

Additional detachable vinyl clear bags also in matching colors:
And embroidery, of course! in purple and green!

Lime color exterior fabric is upholstery polyester, easy to clean, just wipe with a damp cloth. 

Made it in 2 days!

Now couple words about it:

This elegant bag will nicely organize and carry all your sewing, quilting or any other craft supplies. It has 18 pockets! The space under the pockets will allow you to keep there ruler or any other flat items. Ironing pad on the flap side, when unsnapped, can be replaced with beading mat, if you want to use this bag for beading and jewelry making. Large pockets are the regular size of magazine. Patterns will go to smaller flat pockets. Mesh pockets will organize smaller items. Vinyl clear badge holders, sewn to the front side pockets, will keep the cards from your favorite craft shops! Elastic band will allow you to keep pencils, markers and even longer items there, because the slots sewn by 45 degrees angle. You can keep your phone on the outside zippered pocket with embroidery. The pocket on the back side of the bag will hold the bag on the rolling bag or cart. The length of the handles is enough to carry this bag on the shoulder too. Additional vinyl clear bags are good for small items (needles, templates, beads, embellishments...), find hem in my store. Dimensions - 14" x 11" x 7"
