I used Ruby fabrics plus a few from my stash, found this great pattern by Jodi at the Moda Bake Shop and now have what I call my Watermelon Tote!
I am also making the June Schnibbles quilt to match it and you can read all about it and the tote at a previous post here. Some of you have already seen my tote, but that was before I decided to enter it in Jennifer's Summer Sewing Contest...sorry for the repetition! Can't you just see the tote filled with summer goodies or travelling to the beach with my favorite book?
All the projects that are entered into the Summer Sewing Contest can be seen at Jennifer's blog right here. It is like a parade of summer, so make sure you drop by, check it out, and enter your summer treasures! My tote is entry # 53. Entries will be accepted until June 17, finalists will be chosen on the 18th, and voting will be held from June 18-23.
And of course don't forget to visit Connie's Linky Party Tuesday. I've found some wonderful eye candy there and some great "to do" projects by visiting the links. Linking up with Connie is a wonderful way to meet new bloggers and get some great inspiration.
It's a great day for quilting!
