The Quilted Super Tote


You can never have enough totes. Really! It’s a fact! Personally, I have about 10 regularly used totes… a handful of them are designed to be every day handbangs, but the bulk of them are just colorful, fun totes for running around town, heading to the store, etc. I’ve never heard someone say, “I have enough totes”. 😉

So, if you’re going to have a giant stockpile of totes, why not make them even more functional and incredibly cute? That is exactly what Jessica VanDenburgh has done with her Quilted Super Tote. Her design is a great way to show off some of your favorite fabrics, work on your straight line quilting skills and end up with a sturdy, functional and stylish bag.

So, what are you waiting for? Grab a handful of those fabulous Fat Quarters you’ve been hoarding and get started!!
