Quilters Holdall

Carolyn Gibbs


This bag is designed to hold your cutting mat, rulers etc, so that they can easily be stored, and transported to workshops.  Each side has a patchwork panel in a variation of the Delectable Mountains design. Long zips allow the bag to be opened up completely for easy access.  The instructions result in a bag which will hold an A2 cutting mat and a 24” ruler, but could easily be adapted for a bigger size
