    Has anyone ever seen a pattern for a quillow that is the size of a purse and when opend it is a shopping bag. A friend of mine saw one at her Guild and the person who made it was not willing to share any info on it. What a great thing for quilt show shopping ha? It folds so small you can keep a dozen in the car.
    Thank you for all the help

    I have never seen one, But, I have made many quillows. What comes to mind is downsize, and downsize again. It is very do able. Sorry she would'nt share. Why show and tell, if you are not going to share?

    Wow, that would be neat. I've never seen one like this. But I agree, why show it if you can't share the pattern.

    Thank you Rebbeca for your help and for taking the time to answer me.
    I totally agree if you are going to show and tell than that is what you do you share. If I fgure this out and if I find someone who has made it and will share so will I. I will send it on to you.
    Again
    Thank you so much

    I have never heard of such a thing at a Guild. All the ones I belonged to shared all they could.

    THANK-U for giving me the courtesy of a reply to my suggestion. I have never belonged to a guild. And from everything I have heard, I don't think I'll ever consider one. I thought in Guilds you would share with your quilting sisters, Same spirit and all, (I thought). But thats ok. I have made some really good friends on this board and I'm content with that. Please do keep me in mind if you run across the pattern, and I will do the same.

    Sure would not want to belong to that guild! The one I belong to is filled with people just like the ones on this board, always willing to share and help in any way they can. I thought that was the purpose of a guild.

    Thanks for that web site. It showed a rolled up type bag, but would not let me open it for the way it rolled/folded up. I like the picture of that bag, But I think what Patty was talking about, is a quillow, folds up into a sq pillow, so I'm thinking that the quillow type bag, folds up like that but, is a much smaller version. I"m not sure, but I think thats the idea. With out really seeing one, I'm not sure. But thanks so much for your help.

    Hello Rebbeca. Carrie sent me the site for http://www.keepsakequilting.com/productdetail/7105.htm and I checked it out and this pattern is as close as I have seen. Not exact but very close. I may use this one. I also received a site from H M K so you may want to check out her reply to me.
    Thank you so much I truly appreciate this help.
    This is my first time posting and already I am hooked on you ladies.
    Thanx again

    You are absolutely right Rebbeca. It folds up and has a pocket on the front that the bag goes in , just like a quillow.

    I went to this Guild one time and said that is it for me. Much to clicky and snobby. I like down to earth fun people. I love to laugh and I love to make people laugh. Three of my frinds and I have just bookedseats for a bus tour to Lancaster, Pa. for the Quilt Show there. I am so excited I could scream. You meet some of the nicest people on these trips. Oh ya and spend a lot of money.

    Hi There,
    This is the first time I've left a message. Re: the quillow tote. If you click onto the Keepsake Quilting site given in one of the other messages, you will see the picture of a quillow tote and I bet you can decide how to make it. If not, the pattern costs $9.00 plus about $3.00 shipping. I've already ordered it so I can make it as a surprise for a sister who quilts for various charities. Lots of luck making it!

    is a pretty detailed pattern. If you keep the proportions, you should bw able to size it as you like.

    Thank you so much, but would you believe I made the same thing yesterday. All I did was cut my fabric 14" x 37" and the straps were 4 inches wide and as long as I wanted them. I also had to make a facing to sew the straps onto the bag, can just attach to the bag on the outside if you want and sew them good so they don't pull off, then I sewed up the sides and put a pocket between the straps to fold the bag into and there I had it. In other words make a bag and just add a pocket yo the outside.
    Try this before you buy the pattern.
    Thank you again for your information.

    I found this link

    http://u-handbag.typepad.com/uhandblog/

    Go to the tutorials on the right and there is a bag with gussets that you fold up to put in a carrier. With instructions!

    Great site.

    My dear friend HMK made me one of those totes with my initial on it.
    I was thrilled to death when I received it.
