Pattern Details

I was always curious about cathedral quilts and loved the look of them. When I read the instructions in my quilting book for how to do it, I thought "No way will I ever have time to do one of those." One day an idea struck me about how to put it together in a different way. After much experimentation and many hours of hard work (that I enjoyed) I have created this tote pattern as a fun and simple way for you to enjoy the fruits of that idea. Once you get the technique down, it is fun to do this kind of piecing for table runners too. It is a fun project and looks fabulous as a tote or easy table runner. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY cutting, marking and sewing accurately SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Tote size 16" wide x 11" tall and 4" deep on the bottom. Strap drop 11.5"

Recommended with this pattern

  • 1 yard quilting cotton
  • 1 yard contrasting solid duck canvas
  • Peltex Ultra Firm Stabilizer or similar stiff bag stabilizer cut to measure 12.5" x 4" for the bag bottom

Like so many sewists I know, I have been sewing since the age of 6. I started at my mother's feet, fashioning her scraps into doll clothes. By age 16, I was spending Summers sewing my wardrobe for the coming school year. I was known as a creative dresser. I wrote my first sewing pattern in 2006 as part of applying for a patent. Now I have thousands of satisfied sewing pattern customers and am very happy to be part of the online sewing community. See books that feature my work and follow my various adventures on my blog.
