The rules were we could add more of the same line or solids. And we preferred that whatever it was be quilted.
I needed a bag to take all my guild stuff to and from meetings in so the idea of using Madrona Road for it made sense to me. To make sure I kept it within the "rules", I made it quilt-as-you-go-style, which actually lent a lot of support to the sides and bottom. Works for me! The pocket design was inspired by that fabulous herringbone print.
It's got two exterior pockets, an inside zippered pocket, a large notebook or tablet pocket, and a divided pocket for little things and pens. There's plenty of room for my binder, clipboard and various supplies. It's been working really well so far and keeps my all my guild stuff in one place. Handy!
I didn't follow a pattern - just a sketch I did quickly before I started. I've posted a tutorial for the bag on the Saskatoon Modern Quilt Guild page, if you'd like to check it out!
