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!
