    I am making totes too! I made a sample one for trial run.

    A good way to use my 5" squares.

    VERY pretty! Is it your own design, or did you follow a specific pattern? You did a great job! :-P

    Thanks, Belinda!

    It is the Charm Party tote from McCalls Quilting magazine August 2007 issue.

    Thanks, Celeste! The envelope shape is actually a pocket on the front.

    Celeste, you said you liked the envelope block...a friend made a whole quilt with this block and it turned out darling. The pattern is called "S.W.A.K. Envelope Quilt. Simply Quilts: Episode QLT-732. I got the directions fromt he Internet at: http://www.hgtv.com/cr/cda/article_print/1,1250,HGTV_3352_1393814,00.html

    On my directions that I printed from the Internet, there was also this address: URL:http://hgtv.com/hgtv/crafting/article/0,1789,HGTV_3352_1393814,00.html

    My Friend used all her scraps to make the evelopes with the flap of the envelope a different color/fabric than the body of the envelope. This is a cute pattern.
