can you spot the tourist?

If all goes as planned, this project should post as we drive to Maine.

This tote is my little homage to the state I love. The pattern is from Purses, Bags and Totes by Cindy Taylor Oates(the model is an apple basket rather than blueberries). I used fusible fleece to quilt it instead of batting because it was faster. The quilting lines follow the vertical lines on the basketweave fabric.

I can't really bring myself to use it as a purse, so it's filled with paper, crayons and games for the kids when we're eating out this next week.

I have a little backlog of projects that I'm hoping will post while I do touristy things, so stop back in this week, there'll be plenty to see while I'm gone.
