Medium Tote Bag

My Mom came over tonight and we made tote bags. I feel like we are the last people at Patched Works to make them...just like the potato bags the kits were hot sellers at Christmas time.

Mom's was made using I Love Lucy Fabric.

It was a nice easy pattern but I almost think I'd take the time and quilt the three layers together, then assemble the bag and just run binding around the top when done.

Mom and I talked to Sherry tonight and she's coming to quilt retreat with us!! I'm soooooo excited! Look out Ohio, here comes trouble!!

Very cool tote! I've made a few different ones, but haven't found one pattern I really like yet. My pattern is probably similar to yours since the layers aren't quilted on mine either.
