100 Blocks Volume 3: In the Bag

I can’t believe Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 3 is almost here! You will just LOVE the variety of blocks that appear in this issue. There are several that I want to make.

Many of you may remember my block from Volume 2:

Shoe Boxes

And my blog post about my shoe collection (okay, shoe addiction) from last year’s blog tour. You all had so many wonderful suggestions about what type of shoe block I should make for Volume 3 that I couldn’t decide! So instead, I realized that I needed an accessory to go with my shoes. Who doesn’t love a cute little pocketbook to carry all of their essential items!? Check out my block for Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Vol. 3:

It goes together in a snap with one foundation, and my favorite part is the purse handle made using Ruffle Rac from Michael Miller Fabrics. It’s so cute, don’t you think?

So don’t you know, I just had to make a few more! Check out this quilt I’m working on using all Robert Kaufman Fabrics; it still gets a couple of borders, but I’m very excited about it.

I think I want one of each of these purses. I’m glad they aren’t too big – that will keep me from carrying too much stuff around! I’m always finding some random thing that somehow ends up in my purse—aren’t you?

What’s the most unusual thing in your purse right now?

Leave me a comment by Midnight MDT Tuesday, May 3rd, and I’ll draw a random winner to receive their very own copy of 100 Blocks Vol. 3.

Edit on 5/3/11: Thank you all so much for your fabulous comments. I had so much fun reading them all and hearing what you carry in your purses. I hope you enjoy the rest of the blog tour!

I have a brown swatch of leather that matches our couch in my purse.
