Starr Fabrics Travel Duffle

     One of our favorite people in the world is Kathleen Starr of Starr Design Fabrics. Kathleen and her daughter Shelley are often our neighboring vendors at quilt shows and one couldn't ask for better neighbors. Sweet, kind, knowledgeable, and efficient, these ladies have taught us so much about the ins and outs of navigating the show world.

     We love Kathleen's beautiful color-graduating fabrics and eye-catching quilts, so were especially excited when Kathleen decided to use her fabric and our Travel Duffle Bag pattern to make a bag.

     She used a 12 pack of their graduating hand-dyed fabrics and about 2 1/2 yards for lining. Though it must have been a bit time-consuming to plan and piece all those gorgeous colored strips, the effect is stunning. Kathleen says, "I love the way it turned out." We couldn't agree more!!
