Client Quilt and Clam Up Bag Swap

I completed a client's baby quilt on the longarmer.  It's a cute little quilt. The funny thing is that the client loves high loft batting. I've never cared for it myself but that doesn't matter. If the client likes it, I'm happy with it. After I finished quilting it, I did like how puffy it was from the thick batting. It really made the quilting show. 

The quilt shop had a clam up bag contest. You purchased a kit that had a zipper and a fat quarter in it. All you had to do was make the clam up bag any way you wanted as long as you used the zipper and somehow incorporated some of the fat quarter. So I had to make one. I chose to do it as a quilt-as-you-go bag. It went together quick and luckily I got to use my favorite color, yellow. Not that it mattered because after you made it, you voted for your favorite, then they became part of a bag swap.

A funny thing happened at the contest...I got the most votes! I don't know how or why but I did. The thing is I did not qualify for the contest really because I am an employee of the shop. So I never told anyone I got the most votes. How funny is that!?!

Here is the bag I received in the swap. It is cute and I like how they used vinyl to line it.
