Petal Pinwheels Tote Bag

I was able to finish my project for the current MQG fabric challenge yesterday. As I said in my previous post, I made a quilted tote bag.

You can see a few pictures of the process for the variation on the cathedral window and the portholes in this previous post. As mentioned there, I followed the construction instructions from on Elizabeth Hartman’s tote bag pattern to assemble the bag.

The bundle of fat eights provided to us for the challenge was from Michael Miller Fabrics. Most of it came from the Petal Pinwheels collection. I used most of the prints provided. I did buy two additional prints from Michael Miller for the bag exterior and lining. They are respectively: Painter’s Canvas in Slate by Laura Gunn and Nature Walk in Coral from the Wee Wander collection by Sarah Jane. Below, you can see the lining and inside pockets.

The only think I regret is that I didn’t put interfacing on the center print and the first porthole fabrics. I was too eager to start and I didn’t have any home. I did put some on the Painter’s Canvas print and I prefer how it holds. Now, I want to take a look at what others have made with the fabrics provided. If you are are on Instagram and want to have a look too, check the hashtag #mqgfabricchallenge.

    I love it Josée! That canvas print is beautiful and I really like that porthole! :-). I have to admit that my pile of challenge fabric is still on my cutting table, waiting for me to figure out what I want to do with it. My sewing time is somewhat limited in the summer and I had other projects to get done.
