Helena was my bag swap partner last spring. She designed this darling cute spring bag herself and all year I have been trying to replicate it to no avail. I wanted to make a fall one and accomplished the three stitcheries and the handle which is quilted and binded like a quilt. That is as far as I have gotten with the reproduction. Helena and I have been good friends. Our children's lives parallel each other. Her son is grown and living on his own like mine and both our daughters are graduating this year. We both also share the love of our families and the passion for quilting. Helena finally had her pattern published and I received my copy yesterday! I am beyond myself. I am a horrible bag maker and I hope Helena will change all that for me. Please take a moment to check out her new store. She used to have her own shop but has downsized so she definetly knows what she is doing. Congratulations Helena on your new web store!
