    I need some advice. I have this Maxine panel and quote fabric and want to make tote bags and wall quilts. Looking for tote bag patterns for the tote. I want to use the panel on one side of the tote and the quote fabric on the other side with a solid color lining. Please pm with suggestion. Thanks in advance for your help.

    My LQS has this fabric. If you go to Goggle you can search for totes and you will find all kinds of free and fun patterns. I look forward to seeing your pictures.

    If you Google "Free tote bag patterns" you will get gobs of them. Also you might want to check out this site:
    http://pursepatterns.com/. You can narrow your search by typing in "grocery tote", "diaper bag", etc.

    Good luck. Love your fabric.

    Here are pictures of the Maxine Tote Bags. I made one with Maxine Panel on one side and the other side is the fabric with the quotes. The second bag is Maxine Blah fabric with a solid lining and Blah fabric for inside pocket. Opinions please.
