My Secret Valentine!

This is the beautiful Secret Valentine I received! I love the colors and the work is absolutely lovely. It is hand appliqued and hand quilted. I don't have any quilts that are hand quilted so this is a real treasure! Thank you to Deb!

She chose these colors because I answered a little questionnaire my guild sends out so you can get an idea of what your SR likes or better yet, doesn't like. I listed purple and chartreuse as some of my favorite colors. Check out the pretty flange and hand quilting!

New the color scheme on this one! I did a lot of free motion quilting on the floral fabric and added some crystals. The handle is adjustable, I like the tie handle, it adds more texture to the bag.

There are 9 pockets in the bag, loads of storage:)
