Editors' Favorite Bag Patterns
We asked the staff members of American Patchwork & Quilting and Quilts and More to choose a current bag pattern, make the bag, and share their thoughts about why they chose the pattern. See our version of each bag, then click on the next slide for information designer and pattern information.
“I’m a big fan of batiks, so when I saw this pattern I knew I had to make it,” assistant editor Jody Sanders says. “Clothesline covered with 2-1/2”-wide strips of batiks is the secret to this bag. After the clothesline has been covered, the bag is constructed. To get a jump-start, use pre-cut strips such as Bali Pops by Hoffman Fabrics or Jelly Rolls by Moda Fabrics.”
