Lilybo Quilt- at last!

At last! My LilyBo quilt has finally been finished. It seems I started it ages ago, and just completely lost track of last year.The quilt was about three parts done, it was the bag that was daunting me. Not having made one before, I could see disaster looming.
 Anyhow, the sewing machine was out, as I had to adjust the length on the Louvre blind Hubby was putting up in his window last night, so I decided now or never.
 Speaking of Beloved Hubby, he is holding the quilt up from behind the door!

                                                                                    The front of the bag has a panel of bears on it.

The back of the bag has a pocket made from a spare bear patch.

Struggled with the handles a bit- not done those before either.
 Main problem I think, is that I don't use my sewing machine enough, so I'm not really very familiar with it, and every time something didn't go right, I had to keep getting the manual out. Also need to remember to change needles a bit more often. I can see wonky lines, which irritates me, but me and straight lines don't get along too well! Anyhow, I'll be packing this up and getting it off to JoZarty over the weekend, along with a little bear for the pocket.

Oh well done Shaz and the quilt and bag looks fantastic, some child is going to love it.
I thought I was the master of wonky lines!! However you have made one quilt and one bag more than I have and so you deserve a medal :)

Hi Shaz
Love your quilt, is it really your first? Its stunning some little person is going to love it.
Quite frankly . . . straight stitching is over rated in my opinion mine never is and I've made a few.

Oh Shaz, your post made me smile sooo much!!!

And am sure it will bring great joy to some dear little one.. and I pray the LORD will bless that precious child and heal, too..

What splendid work!

..and love the wee bears, and colours (very practical).. hubby did great job of holding it up :D

..and so agree with you on the synopsis of problems with sewing machines.. don't use it enough dont sew straight and am getting manual out too :D Shaz in oz.x

Brilliant quilt (I just made my first one too!)-I agree with the sewing machine comments (I forget to change the needle too!) and as for straight lines-totally over-rated!

Shaz...your quilt and bag are fabulous. I love the quilt. I wish I could make something like that but I only know the basics of sewing and can't quite get past that, lol. Have a great weekend!

Gorgeous quilt Shaz. Great for a lickle one and they won't worry about a little error in stitching while they are snuggled under it.
