A Rush Quilt, Based On A Quilt In A Catalog

Someone contacted me asking if I could create a quilt based on a layette found in a catalog. Well, of course I can I said. I can't copy the design, but colors can be mimicked, the style can be followed, the general idea can be carried through.

This is the set to be used as inspiration.

The client also wanted the quilt personalized.

A Tote for A Fellow Creator.

 Putting the first of 8 zippers.

I gathered up the pockets, 
so they can hold a multitude of beautiful items.

 Larger pockets, for more beautiful things.

I added tabs made from velvet ribbon, to make it easier to open and close the zippers.

Four pockets on one side, two larger pockets on the opposite side. 
Not shown, two long pockets on either narrow side
to hold long items.

 This is the placket to cover the top.
Well, it was intended to be.
But when one is working when one is tired,
mistakes are made. This one was made 3 inches short.
A new one had to be made the next day.
Completed bag, with pocket in the front.

Top of the bag.

Inside, with a total of 9 pockets.
