Right Turn Bag

I dabble in so many different aspects of sewing, that sometimes its a while before I work on one specific thing or another. In other words, I can sometimes be a binge crafter. Its been a while since I’ve done foundation piecing, and I was reminded as I was working on my latest project just how delightful it is! 20150201-DSC_0136

Of course, it helps to be working with such gorgeous fabrics! These are mostly Anna Maria Horner, with a Juliana Horner, a Cotton + Steel, and a Lotta Jansdotter print mixed in.

Seriously though! 20150201-DSC_0142

My favorite part of this bag is all the texture on the front side. After I pieced together the strips, I added some AMH ribbon and then used various decorative stitches from my Janome to embellish. For those large stitches, I used my go to Aurifil 28 wt in various colors. I love that stuff!

The back and strap are velveteen from AMH’s Field Study collection. 20150201-DSC_013820150201-DSC_0132

The interior print is from Honor Roll, and the wicker print pocket lining is from Juliana Horner’s debut collection, Rosette.

I so love working with Anna Maria’s bold, beautiful fabric. Her work was really my first love in the wonderful world of sewing, and I collect every single piece of fabric she designs. Her collections, both old and new, compliment each other so perfectly, yet they all have their own stories and distinctions. I hope she is doing this forever! What incredible talent she has been blessed with.

Who is your favorite designer and why? What sort of fabrics get you excited to sew?
