Have you ever seen anything as disgusting as this table cloth well I was so upset when I finished it I threw it at the back of the cupboard, found it again and decided to unpick it took off all the 3d flowers and charms and had a great idea to make some small childrens bags (second picture) these will be donated to the Christmas shoe box Charity drive I am much happier with the bags.

I like your crazy quilt table cover, and love the little purses that you made from it. Nice that you could take something you didn't like (that was a lot of great work) and make something to love.

I agree it is a very nice crazy quilt, however as it put you in such a bad mood as that....then a wonderful mood to make those lovely lovely purses.... You definitely made a wonderful save. Plus a very good idea for all of us with so many scraps.. Thanks for sharing.

The bags are darling and you have material for many more. The table cloth was a bit busy but why not make some placemats out of what you have left?

I really like the quilt, but understand that sometimes we personally just don't like how things turn out. Nice upscaling project you made with it! Little bags are sweet and a good project for making good use of the quilt.

The bags are beautiful. A table runner may have been possible. When I make a crazy quilt I put sashing between the blocks or it gets very busy. I love how you reused the quilt.

Gosh thank you I never thought about the sashing I was told by a quilting teacher that one should not see the blocks??? Never achieved that

I like the quilt. It has a lot of colors in it. Since you didn't like it, though, I am glad you found a use for it. The bags are great. Hugs, Gail

What in the world was wrong with the quilted tablecloth??? It is exquisite. Still, you have reformated it into lovely little purses.

I agree with Sue, the quilt has so much work involved in it. You've done an excellent job in reusing the quilt and making the little bags for such a wonderful charitable cause. Love Chris
