Sooooo, I’ve been making this quilt for my SIL
….and she’s been waiting a long time. Okay, not as long as my sister waited for hers but about 6 months anyway. In the meantime I went to a little weekend retreat at my local quilt shop. Not being able to bring to my SIL’s double bed size quilt with me for quilting at the retreat (I didn’t want to spill into my neighbors spaces) I decided to create a gift to reward my SIL for her patients and to help me get rid of some of that extra fabric (I always get too much, but I am sure you wouldn’t understand that problem 🙂 ).
Enter the Super Tote!
I bought the pattern when I was in Los Angeles for the final defense of my dissertation. I went up early and had time to stop by Sew Modern quilt shop. It is called The Super Tote by Noodlehead. If you haven’t checked out her website you really should, it is full of great patterns that go viral in our crafty world, or so it seems.
My bag has …
and side gussets!
All of the fabric was from the quilt except for the green, I needed to add that for the whole place-for-the-eye-to-rest thing, it was a little busy otherwise.
Now if I could just get around to sending it to her.
