I finished my quilt-as-you-go mini tote and I absolutely love it! It's a great size for me and I'm so pleased at how nicely it came together. I finished it late Friday afternoon and used it that night at a crafty party at my LQS.
This side is my favorite.
I love the Melody Miller typewriters, and it plays so well with the caramel solid (a bottom-weight cotton fabric from JoAnn that I bought as a remnant a long time ago) as well as the other prints... some of my favorites!
But I love this side, too!
I used to get nervous about combining prints from differnt lines, but I'm definitely feeling more confident now.
I didn't use any interfacing... only batting and more of that bottom-weight fabric as backing to the QAYG panels. It stands up on its own very well.
The finished bag measures 9 inches tall by 8.5 inches wide, and 4 inches deep. The handles are 14.5 inches long. Perfect purse size for me!
I used a magnet closure, it's hidden under the lining. No pockets because I never use them!
That's one more project crossed off the QuiltCon list!
