Quilted Tote Bag

I am struggling for daylight here! It is impossible to photograph things at this time of year. I have tried but I'm afraid the results are pretty hopeless.  This is a tote bag I have just finished, it's a gift for my mum's birthday (she has probably forgotten asking me to make her a new shopping bag as it was a LONG time ago- bad Sally!).


The colours look really odd here, especially the reds.  But I basically selected mainly darker prints (mostly Liberty and Denyse Schmidt) and made 12 4.5" (finished) blocks for each side.


I then quilted and interfaced the panels, joined them together rounding the corners and added these lovely handles.


I then added a lining and bound the top edge like a quilt.  I am really pleased with how it turned out... I might have to make one for myself too!
