Spare Clothes {Quilted Bag}

For a few years, I have been wanting to make a bag/pouch to hold spare clothes and a package of wipes for Button in our car.  The fact that my mom was coming to watch the kids while we were out of town spurred me to make one really quickly for her to be able to find it, in case of an emergency!

I finally rifled through my scraps and came up with the idea of a clothesline.
 I started the background with green 2.5" squares, moved into aqua, and then blues.
Then I did a simple quilting 1/4" away from each seam.

I added a clothesline on the blue with simple applique'd pieces. 
 The line itself is just a zig zag, and then I did a thicker tighter satin stitch for the clothespins.

For the back panel, I used up more strips intermingled with the squares just to give it some interest.

I used leftover "map" fabric for the lining and a blue zipper at the top.

It certainly isn't a WOW! project, but it sure makes it easy for everyone to identify it under his seat and a change of clothes and bag of wipes fit very well in it!

Hubby kinda rolled his eyes when he saw it, but he was happy that Button's spare clothes weren't stuffed in the seat back pocket and now is neat and tidy, tucked under the seat.
