cinch tote bag pattern from All People Quilt

I have not been blogging but decided to day to get back to it.

I have been t Ky to a Quilting Seminar and made a quilt in cindy Casciato's class call Star Quilt. She is a fabulously talented and very sweet person and wonderful teacher. She had such patience with me and my lack of quilting skills and hampered close up vision.

Anyway, I started making Cinch Tote Bags last Fall and have made several. They have grommets which I am loving. You put the handles in through the grommet's and feel them out to the sides and sew them down to the side s. Then when you pick up the bag, it comes together at the top. Magic!!

When you set it down, you can see all your stuff and easily get to anything you want and the handles seem shorter.

The blue batik fabric is Benartex and quite lovely. I did the applique in Texas at the International Quilt Market and when i returned home i made the bag.

Here is another one made with Benartex Celia, By this time I had moved onto colored grommets. I Love this bag too.

This turned out adorable using Moda fabric-so nice to work with.
