Strawberry Biscuit Drawstring Backpack

Hi friends!!

Megan here.  Welcome (if you're new!).  My sister and I blog here, we write quilt patterns and you can see more of our daily creations on Instagram, @QuiltStory and @QuiltStoryMeg

So, the fabulous Elea Lutz asked me if I would work with her new fabric, Strawberry Biscuit, to which I said YES!!

  
I also recently received a book from my friend Kerri Horsley called Lovely Little Patchwork.


It seemed completely natural to pair the two, they are perfect for each other!



I had to make the Strawberry Drawstring bag for my girl.  I mean, seriously.


She's three, so of course she has many things she needs to carry around with her.  She knew quickly what to put in her bag, a couple of her horses.


We found a bug on our travels in the fence...this girl loves any living thing.  Later in the day we found and snuggled a frog.


This fabric is just TOO SWEET!  Right??  The colors are perfect and I really love the prints, especially the main red print I used and some of the pretty florals I'm still hoarding!

 

We're moving soon and one of the things I'll miss the most about Northern VA/DC area...the trees.  These gorgeous tall tall trees are literally our backyard.


Thanks for taking the time to come by and read my rambles.  Check out Elea Lutz and @EleaLutz on Instagram for more of her pretty fabrics!


Also to see more of the blog hop visit Sarah Edgar today, and tomorrow see Minki Kim and Heidi Staples!
