Hey Pat!

Do you know Pat Sloan? She has a very fun blog where she introduces and interviews designers and showcases many of their patterns.

A couple of weeks ago Pat made this tote bag from AllPeopleQuilt.com.

Go HERE to see her bag. As I am dyed in the wool APQ.com and American Patchwork & Quilting fan, I went to the website and downloaded the pattern. Pat wrote me and asked for me to share the tote when I finished. So Pat, here it is!

I had this wild fabric that was waiting for a great project, and this tote was perfect. For all of you Red fans the fabric is Michael Millers Gypsy Bandana. The pattern was so easy, although it took me a couple of days to complete it. Only because I changed my mind on the straps and had to rip out what was sewn and audition other fabrics.

So Pat, here's to you! Another great FREE pattern that works up into a really great little tote.

Happy Quilting!
