    The women I work with are very excited when I bring a new quilt to work for show and tell. I've given quilts to three of them for gifts for special occasions. While on a weekend get a way with them we visited a quilt shop, even though I am the only one that quilts (I'm now helping one learn). As we were shopping one of them really liked the Bow Tuck Tote paper. So silly me says if they would buy the fabric for the tote I would make each of us a tote. So here is what they picked out for fabric (with help) and the finished totes.

    This was for a friend that wasn't on the trip, I made it as a thank you gift. She donated almost 50 pieces of CW fabric for my Dear Jane quilt

    That one is mine :!: Yesterday while at the Hershey Quilt show Pat Slone commented on the purse because she was the fabric designer. That was pretty cool!

    There are lots of pockets on the inside to keep you organized, well maybe not :twisted: . Let me clean mine out and I'll take a pic and post the inside too.
