    A fellow member and I wanted a big tote to use for quilt meetings, classes and to take to quilt shows to store goodies that we acquire. This is the result...
    It is 19" wide x 17" tall and 4 1/2" deep, has seven pockets sized for rulers, books, patterns scissors, rotary cutter, fabric, it will hold a cutting board and a place to put your bottled drink.

    I love mine. She just got hers today and loves hers. Who knows we may be at the same quilt show some day and see each other becuase we have the same tote bag and meet each other.

    I love the colors and the size! I love the pocket for the water bottle. I don't go anywhere without water.

    I used a tote bag for class, but it didn't look nearly as nice.

    It is not from a pattern, I designed it myself. I just made it with the features I wanted.

    Your design ideas are great, especially having the water in a pocket all to itself. You are talented!

    Great job! I'm a big sucker for paisley and I love your fabric choices. The great thing about making tote bags is that you can adapt them for any purpose and make them any size you want. I don't use a pattern for mine either. I just change the proportions and features to suit my purpose. The only problem is that lately I've been making so many tote bags that my quiltmaking has slowed down. Making totes is very addicting!

    I have gotten several PM's asking if I am making this tote to sell, I am. I charge $58 for this Mega Tote, plus shipping which is $12.95.

    Just PM me if you are interested, I can make them in different fabric choices.

    mistiliz has received hers and loves it. http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-41114-2.htm

    "WOW Denise,
    Just received my TOTE and LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT! It is perfect to take to classes, club meetings, shows, etc...
    I LOVE the pockets. I use to carry a tool box with all my notions but now I can just store it in my new tote along with my mat, fabrics, etc... Instead of 3-4 containers, I will just have 2 (tote bag & sewing machine)to take with me.

    Your workmanship is SUPERB! Thank you again!" Liz
