While I'm working on the sports jersey graduation quilts, I need to switch over to something small and simple every once in a while. This is a Jinny Beyer Tote Bag (see picture below) along with some of her fabrics. All other bits - pockets, lining, straps - are cut out and ready for assembly.But this is the weekend my parents move from Chicago to my brother Doug's house in Lombard. Brother Al and his wife Pam will be sleeping in the studio - er, guestroom. Good thing my wonderful Chicago Modern Quilt Guild is having a sew-in this Sunday afternoon. I'll be more than ready to continue working on this bag there!
This tote will be about 20" wide and 15" deep. The construction is foundation pieced. The pattern suggests using a double thickness of batting. Instead I have used Soft and Stable by byannie.com and think it will be perfect.
