    OK. This is not a quilt but I thought you might enjoy seeing these pics. This is the 2nd bag I have made for my sister. I have promised her one for each season. The one she has now is in black/brown colors so that's the winter one. This is the spring one. I've told her not to expect the next for for at least 2 years. Hope you like it.

    great job- we are all sisters here on the board- so guess how many you need to make now....

    (you started it by making for 1 sister, you know you can't show favoritism- we all need one now)

    j/k I don't need one- I'm making 6 for the bridal party for my daughter and including one for me.

    Thanks everyone for the nice compliments. For those of you who asked, here's the pattern:
    http://www.thecreativethimble.com/proftotelarge.html The pattern shows the bag using only 2 fabrics. But the ones on display in the store are usually made with 3. I like 3 fabrics better.

    And here's the floral fabric:

    I love your choice of fabrics! I've just registered for a class for this bag, but haven't purchased materials yet. Yours turned out so nicely, I'll have to see what I can find that would be similar.

    That bag is so cute. Don't let my daughter see it. I have been promising her a bag for a year.

    I thought that bag was the professional tote pattern. I have that pattern but haven't made it yet. Is is hard to make?

    The only hard part of making the bag is sewing the side seams after the inside zipper pocket has been sewn to the bottom. It took me a few tries to figure out what the instructions were saying. And it gets a bit bulky. If you make one of these and get stuck on that side seam, PM me and I'll try to help you through it.

    Ok, thanks. It will be awhile tho. I've already had the pattern a year and haven't had the time yet. :lol:
