    My first quilted tote!

    My aunt, who I think of as my mom, has Multiple Sclerosis. One of my sisters and my mother have also been diagnosed, and I am showing symptoms. I decided to come up with something I can sell and donate a portion to the MS Society. I decided to see if I could make the awareness ribbon block...
    I used the Missouri Star Quilt Company tutorial to make the Multiple Sclerosis Awareness ribbon block. Had the bright and orange D9P blocks laying around from a quilt I never ended up making. I didn't use a pattern for the tote, just made it up as I went. I'm pretty proud of how it turned out... I'm keeping this one for myself, but now I know I can do it.

    A beautiful tote! Love those colors. I was diagnosed 8 years ago, copaxone has done wonders for me, I have hardly any symptoms now. Prayers for you and your family.
