    Default OK..my new tote :)

    I got a quilting book a few weeks ago and was messing around and trying to make one of the blocks with some scrap fabric I had. The block is called Anita's Arrowhead from Rotary Cutting Revolution and I think it is so cool! It is the most intricate block I have ever done, since I am a newbie I have been sticking mostly with precuts so I don't screw up too badly
    Anyway - I had enough scraps to make 4 blocks which I decided to make into a tote. I think it turned out very cute. I used batting and a very stiff pellon so the bag stands up. It is far from perfect but I am a proud Mama

    Marebear, love the tote and the fabric is cool man. LOL Where did you find the peace fabric, I want to make a quilt for my 15 yr. old niece for Christmas and this would be perfect, she would be wild over it.

    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
