    Here is a bit of whimsy that made it's way into my otherwise empty head one day last winter when I was cleaning out some leftover pieces of quilting that never made it into a finished item. What you have is a suitcase. Not your average suitcase, I might add, though. I used some of the very heaviest interfacing from joann's and sandwiched it and some cotton batting into the strange item you see before you. 2 very long sippers and a handle with snap cushion and there you go. The Quilted Suitcase. We are driving down to Santa Fe New Mexico later this week, for a little vacation, and it will accompany me, to satisfy the carrying of my clothes. I don't think we will ever fly while using it, as the T.S.A. would probably throw me into Guantanamo Bay for being suspect. I might just be thrown into there anyway, on general principals.:lol: The inside is shown with 4 pockets made from more leftover quilt pattern pieces. The darn thing actually works. I am not quite sure whether Louis Vuitton is getting worried, but I am.

    When I saw the heading for this and after seeing the beautiful work you do with wood, ... I did think we were going to see a carry on made of wood. Don't laugh at me, my mother used to have one beautifully covered in leather. Boy was that thing heavy, but lovely to look at.
    Once again, wonderful work. Looking forward to your tute.
