Summer Bag Sewing using Manchester Metallics

As mentioned in a previous post, I am participating in a summer sewing challenge sponsored by Sew Mama Sew using Manchester Metallics by Robert Kaufman fabrics. Here's a sneak peak at what I am working on.

I love collaborating with Sew Mama Sew.  The challenge is summer bag sewing and these are the fabrics that I chose:

1/2 yard of natural Essex E014-1242 NATURAL 
1/2 yard of onyx SRKM-15373-181 ONYX
 1/2 yard of indigo CCCX-14114-62 INDIGO

You can't tell by the picture but the Onyx is very sparkly and shiny.  It's more silvery grey than black.   I decided to use it for the applique for this project.

I am using shiny silver thread because it was in my stash.   I haven't used this thread since I made myself a silvery Halloween costume.

 Here's the finished applique.  If you've seen my work, you'll know that I love to applique on everything.

 Look, it's a bike!

But we are not done yet... time for some quilting.

 I didn't go over the applique, just stitched straight lines around it.

Were these pictures enough of a hint as to what I am making?  Stayed tuned for my next post for the big reveal...
