Honestly, I thought I'd be done with patterns for good after 2021, but it appears I can't stop.
The original quilt was in a magazine years ago, but I felt it needed modern directions and more clarity, plus more size options! Once I was working on that part (November!)-- I thought-- well, let's do this up right and add a tote!
The HST Quilt & Tote pattern includes 3 sizes for the quilt - Baby, Throw, and Twin bed size + a large carry-all tote. Included are digitally drawn diagrams with full color quilt layouts to keep you organized.
There are links inside the pattern (fully clickable as a PDF hyperlink!) to guide you through some of the more commonly asked questions I receive on quilting patterns, including how I machine attach my quilt binding and how I sew together the short ends of binding.
The tote has digital diagrams for clarity, with detailed instructions to guide you through. The tote features mini HST made exactly the same way the quilt blocks are made, then it's covered with clear 10 gauge vinyl. I show you exactly what to do. If this is new for you, why not dive in and try it?
I only recommend my clear 10 gauge vinyl, as I cannot speak for other brands. Of course you can substitute different fabrics, colors, and vinyl - you do you! Be sure to make yourself a key chart like I have inside the pattern so you don't get confused though! (Not that it ever happened to me...)
The materials I used for my Tote example are:
Fusible Fleece interfacing
Kona solids for the HST
Heather Bailey quilting cotton for the lining
