It’s always really fun to see what others make from my patterns!

Thanks so much to OMQG for having me (and for the nice post! ). You guys are great.

 

With that, I think I’ll start the holiday weekend off a little early this afternoon with some sewing. This clutch has been on my mind. BIG time.

 

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

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.
