FMQ Friday w/ Leah Day - Finally a Tote bag

I have been craving to make bags for a long time. Since, I started quilting I haven't made anything other than baby/kids quilts or wall hanging.

I made my first quilted tote bag using this video by Jenny@Missour Star Quilt Company. This uses charm packs, great way to use up your charm stash. I tend to buy charm packs a lot because its a great way to collect pieces of all those fabulous fabrics.

I used straight line quilting on the solid and Angela Walters flower design in the charm square. You can see the quilting only on the back, picture#2.

Hmmm this was supposed to be shown vertically

My daughter's favorite color is purple and this is going to be hers. I am making one of me from the same fabric line but different colorway.

Now linking up to Leah Day's FMQ Fridays.
