I used orphan log cabin squares for this tote --- basically techniques for base and handles taken from Bow Tucks design

Thanks to Cordelia from Washington, D.C. area we are all enjoying the special fabrics we can't live without in "tote" or purse form. Penney Sturges - Bow Tucks...love the inside pockets

Jeri"s Quilt Patch in Norway, Michigan offers loads of Civil War fabrics.
I chose a jellyroll of forty different prints. I will have a blast making more items out of the remaining pieces.

40 different Civil War reproduction prints from jelly roll --- basically the weekender tote from Penny Sturges

I really like your jacket and your totes. I love the log cabin one. I have the bow tucks pattern and have made two totes from it and plan to make more. I might have to borrow your idea with the log cabin one. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing.

Everyone has been so generous with your encouragement and praise. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Last evening I met with my quilting sisters for the second annual front porch potluck. We have been making totes. It is amazing how many different designs have been made. Quilters do have wonderful imaginations!

Sew happy to have this outlet to share with you...

Piecefully yours,
Kay Susan
