Ok, some of you know me well, and know that I love totes and bags. Unfortunately I don’t get to indulge my fetish much, but I saw this post by my blogger-friend Neola’s Daughter using quilted strips to make a cute totebag.
You can read the step-by-step instructions on her blog, but the Reader’s Digest version is this: you take sixteen 5- inch blocks and sew them into 4 strips of four blocks each, and then make quilted table runners out of them. Then you lay out those strips into a wind-mill shape and stitch where they join together. (That makes the bottom.) You then stitch the strips together to form sides, and then make a strap.
You end up with a super-cute and functional deep tote that you can be proud to take to the market. And you can use up some of those rogue blocks in the process!
