Architextures tote for Laurie.

Quilt Market has always been a fun adventure, and this last time was especially nice because my sister Laurie came along to help. To show her some gratitude and also make sure she was well-equipped and festive for the weekend, I made for her an architextures tote bag.

The design itself was fairly simple. To create the outside panels, I used blocks from my herringbone pattern, some Kona teal blue to frame the blocks, and big chunks of the blue trees. I sewed those together, adding box corners at the bottom and some straps at the top. For the inside I used the green topo and a selvage label with tree markings on the pocket.

It just so happens that my sister is a landscape architect, so this was not only a fitting gift for toting around Quilt Market, but it’s also apparently been a big hit in her office.
