Not Quite What I Expected.

My rainbow coloured quilt bag is finished but is very much larger than I expected.
This shows the gathered in end with cord and toggles to hold it closed.

It's very difficult to take a decent photo but here's what it looks like. It is huge and would hold 3 middle sized quilts or one kingsized. It is symetrical though doesn't look it in this photo. The handles didn't seem long enough on the pattern's measurements, so I made them longer,  but once sewn on I can see that they would have worked so I'll try it like it is but may shorten them which would be quite simple.
I've had little time to blog this week and have more visitors arriving tomorrow, so I'm extra busy. ( so sorry if I haven't commented much lately )
We have been eating small helpings of broad beans very young and tender and adding some tops too. See just how tall they have grown!

That's an interesting bag. I've never seen one designed like that.
We had our first frost this week so the gardening is pretty well over.

At first glance I thought I was seeing a collapsed hot air balloon! Very colourful and practical! There aren't many bags would hold three full sized quilts! I'm sure you'll get lots of use from it.

The bag looks great. Is it summer now or is it still spring?

I love broad beans. Yours look amazing.
Your bag is wonderfully colourful.
