Project Quilting Spring Challenge

I made this bag for the Project Quilting Hooray for Spring challenge. What could be more springy then bright colors and getting ready for warm weather traveling. I designed this bag after one I saw on the Riley Blake website. I wanted to change up the dimensions a bit. I made a strip pieced outside then quilted it to cotton batting and Peltex. I did the same for the sides and bottom. The top has an exposed pink zipper. I added rectangle rings to guide the strap which is a long loop that wraps underneath the bag, through fabric tubes, and has an adjustable tab to shorten or lengthen the straps. It is fully lined with a fun green polka dot print and a green lime slice looking print. The bag measures at its widest 20 inches by 13 inches tall by 5.75" deep. I created my fun springy bag at my home in Lanoka Harbor, NJ. I am calling this my Spring Retro Travel Bag
