This is my CQJP block for February.  It was made into the flap of my new Boho Bag.  I forgot to take a picture of the completed flap before I put my bag together, I was so excited to be putting a new bag together.  I just wanted it done!

For my bag I used elements I had purchased at various Etsy shops including  Gypsy Feather, Delightful Designer, Raviolee Dreams, and CathysCrazybyDesign.

This is the completed front.  The instruction booklet for this bag came from Pat Winter's Boho Fever Booklet.  Also her spring edition of the Crazy Quilt Gathering's magazine is out and the link to purchase can also be found on her blog.

This is the back of the bag

And under the flap.  Pat had some graphics you can copy and use for your bag

This is a pocket inside.

I am going to have a lot of fun showing this off at work today.

I tried another new stitch to me in Sharon Boggan's TAST-2013, the Triangular Feather Stitch.  I really liked it, and it is another version of my all-time favorite the feather stitch.  It is on the current Boho purse I am working on, soon to start another one for a friend at work.  This one is for me.  Will be ready to reveal maybe next week.

Nancy's Boho

After I had finished my Boho Bag, I showed it around at work.  Two of the nurses I work with expressed interest in me making one for them too.

Nancy was the first one, so I made hers first and just finished it yesterday before I went back to work for the week.  She had wanted greens and earth colors.

She was thrilled with the result. The other ladies at work were ooying and ahing too.   I need to adjust the strap though today before I go to work and then I can call this one done.

 This is the back.

                       Under the flap:

The last photo is of the one of the inside pockets.  There are a row of pockets on the other side, but they are the same color as the lining fabric and hard to photograph.

Pat Winter's booklet Boho Fever was where I got the instructions to make this bag, and can be found at her site.

I will post my granddaughter's bag tomorrow.  I finished that one for Christmas, and she was delighted with it!

TAST-Stitch 49: Knotted Feather Stitch

I am about 3 weeks late, but this is my sample of the Knotted Feather, in Take a Stitch Tuesday, hosted by Sharon Boggan.

I had finished my sample several weeks ago, but have been concentrating on finishing my first commissioned Boho Bag.  I hope to finish it up today, and give it to the nurse at work tomorrow I am making it for.
Will have more pictures later when it is completed.
