May's tote bag

Number three in the set, made from a layer cake of Sandy Gervais (for Moda) 'Frolic', using a pattern called 'On the Move':

The full panel - the complete outer layer is patched and then quilted before assembling the bag.

Close up of the double stipple free-motion quilting (thanks Leah Day!) on some of the  panels.


  1. Very cute bag!! Love the colours!! The straight line quilting sure shows up nicely on the sides of the bag. I really like the bag pattern - looks very sturdy. Lovely job!

  2. Thank you! I am just waiting for the perfect reason to give it to someone as a gift...I do have a bit of a plan... have a great week!

  3. What a cute bag. Love the fabrics you chose.

    1. Thanks! I think the colour mix is really cool for these fabrics -fresh and happy!
