This is a collection of 14 beautiful bag and purse designs to take you through the week, with a pair of projects for each day and a design for every occasion. Whether it's Wednesday's 'Typo Bag' - great for a work conference - or the 'Quilter's Backpack' and 'Ticket Purse' - perfect for Sunday afteron trips - Susan Briscoe's new collection of practical designs is sure to inspire quilters of all abilities. Each of the daily duos uses a different quick and simple patchwork or applique method to make a complementary pair and require the same patchwork techniques, so quilters can try out the smaller item before embarking on the main bag. Easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions ensure that the bags are as pleasurable to make as they are to use. Each pair is 'fat quarter friendly' and uses quick and simple methods popular with quilters, such as bias binding. All of the bags are accompanied by a variation that shows them off in a completely different colour scheme, effectively giving quilters 14 further inspirational designs.
