    1-MARCH 2014 Project of the Month

    I'm not sure if I'm doing this right but I'll give it a try. I am posting this a day early because we have out of town company coming tomorrow. I have been quite stressed as I've never done anything like this before and I'm a relatively new quilter. But when I make a commitment I don't cop out so I'll do my best.

    i found this pattern for a Quilted Wine Tote - tried it and loved it. Wine these days is a very popular choice of drinks. This tote serves well when you go to a BYOB (bring your own bottle) affair or as a great hostess gift when visiting friends and/or family. They'll go crazy when you tell them the Tote is theirs to keep.

    i found the pattern at this web site (THANKS to the creator.):

    i will post my pictures on the "1-MARCH 2014 Project of the Month PHOTO" hopefully... LOL!

    I hope you enjoy this project and get a few Christmas gifts made as a result.

    Pat

    A Wine Tote? Wow, this is right up my alley. I just hope mine turns out like this! A great project, will be excited to see everyone's finished totes. I would love to have some of these made for Christmas gifts.

    Neat project! Question... when you print out the pattern and instructions from the blog, is there an easy way, or do you print out all the pictures etc. not knowing where the page breaks will be? Thanks!

    This looks doable to my limited experience skill set. Not sure if I will actually get it done this month though. I am going to try though cause it would be awesome to have on hand as a host/ess gift ready to go when needed. Thanks or finding it and posting.

    Thanks Pat for the project. We don't actually drink or give wine but I think I will try to adapt this pattern to fit our tall Stanley thermoses. Hoping mine will turn out as nicely as this young lady's did.
