I put borders on both panels of the lap quilt. I put a wider border on the bottom panel for the machine quilter because they always need the backing to be larger than the front.

I also figured out how to use the squares I messed up on the first attempt making this quilt. I goofed up while cutting and made them slightly rectangular rather than square. I saw a picture of a bag this evening and had an "ah ha" moment and ran back upstairs and immediately put this together.
I lined the bag with another cotton fabric. I haven't attached the handles yet, because I'm not quite sure how I want to do it, i.e. whether I want to add some additional reinforcement around the top edge.
