Round Hexagon bag

Elly made this great little bag. She writes :
The pattern was from the book "21 terrific patchwork bags" by Susan Briscoe. I made it using Inklingo shape collection 1, using the 1" hexagon + halves and diamond. It turned out slightly bigger than the pattern in the book since the hexes in that are 7/8" size... but that was okay since it gave a bigger bag :) It was quite easy to adjust.

The finished size of my bag is 8.5" in diameter. I used a suitable sized plate to make the circle background.. (bear in mind you need 1/2" seam allowance all round) and appliqued the Inklingo panels to it. The pattern says to hand quilt but I was in a hurry so machine quilted (it will be stronger for it too).

Lovely version of the bag - and it is perfectly OK to quilt it however you like! Mine was hand quilted because I needed a portable project (my dad was recovering from an operation at the time, and I did some of the quilting at the hospital). The colours in this one are gorgeous and remind me of raspberries!

Absolutely have a weakness for bags. Please put me on the list to win this project.

Sorry miss america, but this one is not part of the give-away. Only the posts labeled "give-away" are part of that. Everything else is "just" Inklingoists showing what they are doing with Inklingo.
