http://www.pbtex.com/PBTex_CHLObakpak.pdf . It is called the Chloe Quilted Backpack from P&B Textiles. I really like the sample bag but I decided to use a different color theme. I chose reds and blues that resemble a cowboy/western theme. After sewing the strips together, I thought it was going to be a little too small so I added an extra rectangular piece above the strips. The quilting is plain straight line machine quilting on a diagonal. After the quilting, I don't know if I really like quilting. It seems to me so boring to sew numerous straight lines over and over. Maybe if I had tried some freestyle quilting I would've enjoyed it more. Even though I have done a lot of sewing throughout the years, I have only done one quilting project and that was an easy log cabin pillow. I hope to finish this project in the next couple of days and I hope I'm not disappointed.
