Roxie Bag

IMG_5328Seems like everything I have been working on for the last six months has been a secret. It was so hard to keep this one under wraps because I am so proud of it and wanted to share with you all.  I developed the “Roxie Bag” for Quilted Adventures 2016. Today is the official launch of Quilted Adventure 2016. This is an online retreat that starts January 15, 2016. It runs for the entire year of 2016. The cost is $99. Click on the graphic below for more information and to register. If you register by Tuesday, October 20, 2015, you will be entered into a goody bag drawing ~ 100 random participants will receive a goody bag (to be mailed out in the new year). It is not too early to sign up, start chatting and meeting new quilting friends and get your class supply lists and materials in preparation of the kick-off. Wouldn’t this be a great gift for a quilty friend or for YOUR Christmas gift wish list? Sign up with a small group of quilty friends and have your own little “mini” retreat once a month. All the classes have video instruction and your instructors will be available to answer any questions that you might have. Congratulations to Mary who is the winner of my give-away for free admission to Quilted Adventures 2016.

These cute little bags are made with a flex frame closure. It can be made into a shoulder bag by attaching a long chain or a hand bag by attaching a short chain. If you want to use the bag as a cosmetic case, you can remove the loops. The purse hardware is available in my Etsy shop. Just click here. I AM GIVING AWAY A FREE HARDWARE KIT TO THE FIRST 25 PEOPLE WHO REGISTER WITH MY LINK (CLICK ON GRAPHIC ABOVE) TO BE MAILED IN LATE DECEMBER.

It is so much fun to mix and match fabrics to make this bag. You can make one bag from two fat quarters or 4-12″ squares of fabric. Bet you can’t make just one. They make great gifts. I also have them for sale in my Etsy shop if you aren’t interested in making one yourself, just click here to see everything I have for sale in my shop.

  1. Vary pretty and colorful and I thing the younger gals will really like them. One of the nice things about them you will be able to wash them.

  2. Woo! I am excited to be the winner of a whole year of instruction and fun! Learning something new is my idea of fun, so I hurried right over to register. Can’t wait to make this cute bag! Thanks!!!

  3. At a retreat last year, you stated the pattern for this bag would be available for public purchase after the new year (2017) so I bought the kit; however, I still cannot find it for sale on your store. Is this pattern not going to be for sale after all?

  4. Hello. My name is Becca and I’m attempting to find a rather old quilt that belonged to my family and we would like
    it back, please.

    I’ve e-mailed quite a few Flordia musuem staff and they have not been able to locate this quilt. I’m hoping
    that perhaps you or one of your readers might have seen it. If this is an inappropriate place to post this,
    administrator, I apologize and please feel free to remove this post.

    Here are the facts:

    Edith Linstrom Forsberd sewed this quilt, probaby in the 1920’s.

    It is a full sized quilt with applicaed, yellow tulips. The tulips would have been in the center of the quilt and
    not in each square.

    It has a white or cream background.

    The edging is probably a green that matches the leaves on the tulips.

    It is in the Rose of Sharon design.

    Bella Linstrom donated the quilt to a museum in either in Flordia or Kansas in between 1950 to 1960.

    Unfortunately, it was never photographed.

    It was made by hand.

    Everyone, thank you so much for getting back to me if you have any info on this family quilt. It would mean so much to my
    grandma to have this back. If you have any information, please e-mail me at
