Red, White and Blue Hand Bag

God Bless America Clasp Purse - Front
For the Crazy Quilt Journal Project (CQJP) 2014, my goal was to create a purse a month. I fell behind schedule, but did not give up on that goal. This is the 11th purse, so I only have one more to go.

The clutch purse was created with my May CQJP 2014 block. Several of the seams were embellished with stitches from Take A Stitch Tuesday (TAST), which was offered by Sharon B. of

Excluding the crazy quilting, the general pattern for the bag was made following the guide shared in this tutorial at Sweet Bee Buzzings for a smaller coin purse.
Last December, I decided to participate with the All People Quilt UFO Challenge 2017. (More details are here.) This block was #5 on my list. #5 was the project selected for August.

The purse has been donated to be auctioned off later this week to raise funds for engineering scholarships in Oregon. 

I do hope the new owner likes it.

I like this one - it should raise good money for the cause!

I'm sure the new owner is going to count themselves very lucky to have won that in the auction!

You always do such beautiful work.

Thanks so much for linking up to last week's Stitchery Link Party and for the link back. Aloha hugs!
