I needed to take a little break from making 120-some flying geese for my Lucinda Brodie quilt, so I put quilt guild buddy Myrt's Disappearing Nine Patch on the frame and let the IQ do five rows of a delightful McTavish-y looking pantogram that just made the quilt spiffy!

Here's that pattern.  Doesn't it look luscious?

While the IQ was doing its thing, I resumed making my Professional Tote by Creative Thimble,   I'll tell you.  This is one heck of a project.  Lots of things that need to be done, and in a specific order, of course.  No "eyeballing" it here.  This is the front of the bag.  You can see a zippered pocket in the middle and two pockets on the sides that are held partially closed by narrow cording and cording locks.

The back has a long pocket held shut with Velcro.  Above this pocket is a marvelous travel strap that lets the tote slide onto your luggage handle!  Isn't that cool?  Below is a picture of a handle going through the strap.

Inside there are even more pockets.  There is a long one in the center that is zippered and several along the sides.
It sure feels good to have this project done at last!

  1. Great Bag. Love it. The quilting on your 9 patch there is just awesome. Wish I was there with your guild making those quilts.
