Fabric Tuesday: London Patchwork Weekender

Giveaway is still going on to celebrate the launch of my first pattern. Win a copy of the pattern, or a fat eighth bundle from Westwood Acres. Read all about it over here!

And now, I will spare you all my ridiculous attempts to write with a British accent.

You're welcome.

But my MIL has a British accent, and I thought she'd like her own Weekender, made with London fabrics.

Used the leftovers from my husband's quilt from last year. Turns out I have enough for TWO London Weekenders. I'll need to take dozens of vacations just to get some use out of all these bags!

Lined with cars and buses. Piping and handles in black, and the top zipper panel in bright red dots.

Checking this one off the 4QFAL list. Now to hide it until Christmas. She babysits at times, and I don't want her "discovering" it.

If you're interested in making a patchwork Weekender, I put together a post with my tips and tricks that I've learned along the way. You can find it here, and I hope you make one of your own!

And linking up!
