Not a Purse

A few months ago, I visited the Fabric Shack and a couple other quilt shops and kept seeing the Fresh line of fabric. I really, really liked it and thought it would make a great spring/summer purse, so I came home and went through all my purse patterns to find one that would look good and go together relatively quickly. I settled on an Atkinson's Designs pattern from the book Let's Do Lunch, bought my fabric in my April visit to Fabric Shack, and worked it into my to-do list. I got it started on Friday night, quilted it on Saturday afternoon,
and finished putting it together last night.

One problem. It's not a purse...unless you're a giant! It finished as a tote, and I still love it! It will be with me next weekend on my trip to the NQA show in Columbus.
