This tote bag was a fun one! What a great way to use a panel! I got this fabric and pattern kit from the Front Porch Quilt Shop and gifted this bag to my mom. The construction of the bag was different from any other bag I’ve done so far, done in a way where the front/back, sides and bottom pieces are sewn together to make one large piece, quilted, and then folded around to form the structure of the outer bag (instead of quilting the separate pieces and assembling afterward).
I quilted this free-motion on my Juki 2010Q because it was too small to put on the longarm. It was fun to create designs on this Minnesota lake scene. I used Soft and Stable, which gave it great form and added SF101 to the lining.
I definitely plan on using this pattern again. The tote is a perfect size to carry books or project materials.
