Pretty patchwork tote

Here’s the finished patchwork tote and it’s just been listed in my shop.ย  I have sooo many extra 5″ fabric squares that have just been sitting in a rubbermaid box. I pulled 9 different prints and used them in this patchwork rag quilt tote.ย  I tried to keep the prints in the same color families.ย  I think it turned out pretty.ย  Just 1000+ squares to go! ๐Ÿ˜ฏย

I started this rag quilt tote yesterday. When I cut out fabric for a tote, I end up with lots of extra 5″ squares.ย  Paul suggested I start taking those squares and putting them together in a patchwork quilt look.ย  So, I grabbed a few different prints and started this one.ย  I think it’s going to be really pretty.ย  It will make a great tote for next spring and summer.ย

Finished rag quilt & pretty Amy Butler fabrics

This quilt is ready to ship and can be found here ********************************************************

I just love Amy Butler fabrics, especially from her Love Collection.ย  The colors and prints are so bold and pretty!ย  This collection is very popular with my customers and I’m glad Amy Butler hasn’t discontinued it.ย  I can make any size quilt, from crib size to king.ย  I would love to talk with you about a rag quilt using these lovely fabrics. ย

I started this quilt yesterday. It’ll go in my Etsy shop when it’s finished. Rows need to be sewn together next. Hopefully, I’ll find some time this weekend to get that done and start clipping seams.
