I much prefer to work in this size.
I did attempt a larger project:
Way too many opportunities for mistakes and way too hard to quilt on a regular old sewing machine!
I used left over material (which I bought at a yard sale last winter) to make a shopping bag. I plan to fill that with jars of jam and maple syrup; coffee, tea and hot chocolate; pancake and scone mixes. I will call it breakfast in a bag and donate that to the auction as well.
I can whip these bags up in no time so maybe I will just specialize in bags from now on.
