Free Motion Laptop Bag

Check out this gorgeous laptop bag made by Heather Olmstead. Heather attended the Free Motion Quilting For The Absolutely Terrified workshop which was held during this year's N.S. Fibre Arts Festival.
After Heather stitched the whole cloth sampler from class, she did the design again on this case. Heather writes that she is now just "slightly terrified" of the process. Fabulous job, Heather!


  1. OMG. I love it. And I love the colors. the blue binding just sets it off!! Great job on the free motion. It looks perfect to me.

  2. It's fantastic! I can't believe she's still "slightly terrified". She's done a wonderful job. Thanks for sharing.

  3. What a lovely bag! You should feel proud too, having helped Heather on her free motion journey.

  4. It's a beauty for sure. Congrats Heather, and thanks Karen

  5. Wow. Beautiful job. I am so far off of that!!

  6. I remember reading your posts about the workshop. So fun to now see what students have created after taking this class. This sleeve is spectacular. Love it.
