The Queen Bee Quilting Bag

Isn't this an awesome bag?  I found the pattern on the Moda Bake Shop while searching for a bag to teach at the annual Pie Plate Pattern's Spring Retreat.  It's a huge bag, as you can see in the pics.  By the time I get this up on my shoulder I have about 6" before it hits the ground.  
 It uses 1 charm pack of your favorite fabric line and yardage of two prints that coordinate.  I used Aneela Hooley's Sew Stitchy for my charm pack and the grey pins fabric for my lining and handles.  For the back side of my bag I used yardage from the Oh Deer line.  Both fabrics are Moda.  I did make a few minor changes to my bag.
It holds my cutting mat, acrylic extension table, rulers, iron and a whole lot of other sewing supplies that I might need to take to sewing retreats.  You will definately feel like a Queen Bee when you show up at your next Bee or quilting class sporting this bag.

I think we might have to buy the pattern to take back home. Will be a fun project for the Bee!
