Fantastic I thought yellow is my favourite color and I love daffodils too!
I created 10 daffodils of various yellow fabrics (1 for each anniversary of the Guild), added various colors of yellow crystals and some silver beads to them just for a little bling.
I made the lining out of various shades of blue and yellow log cabins, then sandwiched and quilted it. I added a little strip of silver fabric to the edges just prior to joining them in an effort to reduce the bulk on the side seams. I sandwiched and quilted the otter shell of the bag with a very stiff interfacing and thin yellow fabric. I wanted the outer shell to stiff, and once I put them all together my bag literally stands up on its own. It's very stiff.
I added a tab inside the bag complete with a hook to attach my keys to (so I can find them, instead of searching for them all the time like I do in my purse).

Happy Quilting and thanks for stopping by. Hope you like my bag too!
