Latest summer purse - blue and white "Patchwork"

This is my latest of my summer purse series, and sports 3 batik prints on the exterior. It's nice and large and roomy, and the shoulder strap is extra long for shoulder or across the body transport.

I had fun making this purse, and have to say that taking a beginner's quilting class some time ago has helped perfect my sewing skills. It's true that learning the quilting basics is the foundation for all else when it comes to working with fabrics. My seams are "just right", in that they intersect perfectly!
And, I just love making fabric flower embellishments. For this purse, I used 4 layers of fabric instead of 3.

Please feel free to take a better look at this roomy purse, including the inside lining and pockets.
