Anne of Windy Poplars

Click on any picture for a larger view.

Anne of Windy Poplars is a textile delight. Vintage colored chenille, hand pieced antique quilting bits, flocked fluer de lis.... ahhhh.

When Anne was in Windy Poplars at her first teaching job, the town grew to love her as a spirited, loveable, almost meddlesome girl. Just like this bag, spirited, loveable and almost meddlesome from the scrap bags of many grandma's.

The flap is a rainbow of oranges, light blues, pale yellows and mint greens topped off with a lovely orange flower with a blue button center. The cell pocket is also from Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt pieces. The strap is a hodge-podge of the flap fabrics and the back of the bag is sturdy orange flocked fabric in swirls the same color as Anne's hair.... carrots. The inside pockets are detailed with flowers and touristy information from the East Coast. This bag would inspire even Anne's imagination.
