Stitch and Flip Bag.

I'm working on another bag, using up some of my nice Japanese fabrics. This is being stitched and quilted straight onto a piece of wadding, but not with extra stiffener. Usually I put the wadding on top of a piece of heavy cotton canvas type fabric - a cotton duck works well, but if you ask for that in Dunelm you get some strange looks, although they do sell a fabric I would call cotton Duck!!

I work across one piece of wadding but making two areas. One for the bag front and another for the bag back, and where they meet, where the side seam would be I just tuck under the edge of the strip that joins them up and machine it down. Then add strips for top and bottom. Progress so far:
