JB quilted tote

Hi, Well my addiction continues...finished up a quilted tote and for me, again it's my first quilted tote. I'm taking a class at a small quilt shop and in July she showed us a 64 patch quilted tote to make w/ left overs. I had some Jenny Beyer (JB) 5" scraps (they literally looked like they were scraps the way they were packaged in a sandwich bag and just barely 5" squares). Anyway, using the lesson guide, my JB scraps, a little creativity to add interior pockets and Leah Day's loopy loop quilt pattern, I finished my tote. I wanted the practice and needed a quilted tote that I made instead of a purchased item. I'm ready for the retreat now!

WOW this is your first???? Very professional looking!

I'm a fan of Jenny's too. I really need to practice my FMQing - it's only been 5 years lol!!! Each time I practice I wait so long till the next practice that I have to start all over again.

Looking forward to seeing you at the retreat!!

Beautiful!!! I find the loopy loops to be very forgiving and an easy design to quilt that allows me to relax and get into the zone, although most of my quilting is done on a frame. From the loops, add hearts in between or leaf shapes or any other shape (after practice-practice-practice:)

Very pretty fabrics! You have been so productive this weekend

Thank you... Can't wait to meet everyone myself! I'm also happy to find this forum, but I must give credit to Kate...she kindly pushed me to join..so glad I did!

Marsha, you are right, loopy loops is forgiving and easy. I recommend it for anyone starting fmq. ...What do you mean most of your quilting is done on a frame... is this a long arm machine?

Val, it's wonderful! Good job and good use of Jinny's fabrics. You won't be surprised to hear that I love the bling too! Is that from your bead stash?

Great looking tote.....love that touch of bling. however, be very careful, tote/purse making is kinda addictive.
This may be your first but I bet it won't be your last.:)

RE: JB quilted tote

Thank you all...your kind words and encouragement feeds this constant urge to quilt something...anything...LOL!!! Murphy_zone7: I dare say you may be correct, I did the 64 patch over two week nights and made the tote in no time over the weekend...already thinking of more totes.
And the bling...well that's actually curtain / drapery hardware to be used for holdback...never used for my curtains and it was just sitting there saying Use Me!
