Hello and happy Monday! Today I’m excited to tell you about the upcoming issue of Quilts and More, Summer 2017, and a project I have included in it!
I’ve been having a lot of fun participating in the Scrap Lab section of each
issue…it’s been a really fun exercise in creativity for me. For each issue, the editors send along a package of fabrics, and I get to design any project I want with them. There are always two other designers working on projects with the same fabrics, and it’s always a lot of fun to see what they come up with, too!
For my first project I did pillows, and so this time I thought I’d do a tote bag! This is an extra large tote that is big enough to take along everything you need for an outing! I lined it with Soft & Stable and did the straight line quilting myself.
The collection comes with a large panel and supporting prints and florals that coordinate. The colors are bright and vivid!
And here are all three projects together! A spring wall hanging and table topper that both make great use of the fabrics…or your favorite spring fabric collection!
The issue is officially on sale on April 24th…and judging from the cover above there are going to be a lot of terrific projects included (think I need to make the half square triangle cover quilt as soon as possible)!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
