Embracing Inspiration: It’s found in the Bag!

Bag Collage

I wish I could take credit for putting together this adorable bag sample as pictured here!  Cindy from Kingston Quilt Shop, a local quilt shop in the area, put her ‘sewing goddess’ skills to good use and created this gorgeous sample made from the newest Laurel Burch release, Embracing Horses by Clothworks.  Her thoughtful pairing of fabrics- the teal batik from Clothworks Fresh Batik Minerals collection combined with the prints from Embracing Horses, really are quite stunning!  The horses almost take on a ‘camouflage’ look if you blur your eyes a little.

Cindy used the Sweet Pea Everday Totebag pattern by Kati Cupcake Patterns to create her sample version.

This sweet little pattern transcends into something chic when it’s made up in a sophisticated fabric such as the jewel-toned teal colorway of Laurel Burch’s Embracing Horses!  And the details really make it!!  Just take a look at the close-up pic below.  Cindy is quite proud of the fabric covered button so cleverly fussy-cut to show the horse’s cute face:

Well done, Cindy!!  Every bit of this bag sample is beautiful, right down to the stitching!  After admiring your gorgeous work, I’m inspired to create!

What about you?  Have you seen any samples lately in your LQS (local quilt shop) that have moved you to create?  We’d love to know!

Or maybe you’re a local quilt shop that has some fun show and tell to share with us!  Send your pics to stephanie at clothworks dot com!
