This spectacular piece of crazy quilting was done by Jo in NZ in a round robin some years back. Without a doubt Jo is the best stitcher I have ever seen. I have saved it for something special.
Something that would really showcase it and this velvet bag/tote is my choice. I have been working on it for a while and it is ready for the lining and handle.
The back side of the bag is much plainer but the wide black lace shows up better in this shot. There is still more lace and embellishment to be added but it is coming along.
