“Read” Totebag Finished

24 09 2014

This past Spring, Quiltmaker published volume 9 of Quiltmakers 100 Blocks from Today’s Top Designers.


During the blog tour week, I stitched and featured several blocks on my blog. “Read,” designed by Cindy Lammon was shown on May 2. Click here to read more about this block.


I used the 12″ block as a panel on a quilted totebag. Fortunately, I had enough of the burgundy fabric (used for the book on the left hand side) to make the body of the bag and handles. I quilted a medium/small meandering design with burgundy thread on the body of the bag and in the matching book. I changed thread to an old-gold poly for the remainder of the panel.

The bag is perfect for toting borrowed materials to and from the library!
