in a few hours I will be headed to Hershey to set up for Quilt Odyssey. Hopefully you will have a chance to visit. Usually it is incredibly hot and ends with a major thunderstorm. Last year I got out of town just before the flooding took over. This year the weather seems to be a bit more settled (Where is that wood?!?!)
We received some great new fabrics and some I have even used. Click on the pictures for further details.
For some reason when I saw it I thought 'Tote' and so it became.
This is the easiest tote you will ever make. After attaching the fusible pellon craft batting I folded it in half and marked a line across the fold with pins. Then I quilted two lines, each 1 1/2" from that center marked line. This formed the bad bottom. I cross hatch quilted both sides and was ready to make the bag.
Stitch the sides together, square off the bottom corners, and add handles and a lining. This would work for any panel that doesn't have a definite top and bottom.
These sunflowers would also do well as a bag.
Pheasant Run from Blank Quilting also spoke to me but more as a throw.

Hope to see you in Hershey this weekend!
