A Tulip Bag of steel

My mother’s friend, Winnie Lemmon, a member of The Village Quilters in Loudon, Tenn., made this super-cute version of my Tulip Bag pattern. Can you tell Winnie’s a Pittsburgh Steelers fan? Just a little bit? She actually made this purse for someone she knows in Pittsburgh. It’s all done up in Steelers black and gold, complete with a little football button on the tab.

Winnie and her husband, Bill, are incredible Steelers fans, and even have a room in their house devoted to Steelers memorabilia.

I grew up in Pittsburgh, so I am waving my Terrible Towel right along with her. Go Steelers!
