    On this one you sew the lining to the top and flip it over. Then use french seams on the bag itself. The handles are sewn to the outside. Angie Quilts: Angie's Big Quilted Panel Bag

    I have a great pattern from Fons & Porter for a bag made with pre-quilted fabric and the straps are sewn onto the outside underneath a pocket. It had the french seams and all. It sounds like what you're looking for. If you'd like for me to email you a copy of the instructions, send me a message with your email address.

    I would either fold in the top edge like suggested above, or make and attach bias tape to the top edge like binding.

    I think you would have to leave about 1/2'' un-quilted so you could fold it in and tuck the straps and then sew along the top.

    Has anyone made a tote bag with the lining quilted with the top and batting instead of adding it separately? When I follow Jenny's tutorial I don't like the way my lining looks. I know how to do French seams for the sides but how do you add the handles and finish the top edge? Thanks.
