I'm curious! How and when did you learn about color? Do you rely on what you learned in your schooldays? Have you taken formal color or quilters' classes? Do you still struggle with color? Do you work intuitively?

Candy Sweet purse for AmyAny excuse to make something for someone is always high on my list of things to do especially when it comes to Christmas and Birthdays, so knowing my granddaughter Amy loves purses, I just had to make her one this Christmas.

The original pattern has two applique designs that can be used - or you can use a favorite fabric in the panel inside - but I chose to create my own fabric and add some additional touches.
