"Barbara is a mind reader! I've been seeking a pattern for a large tote with lots of pockets yet has a shape to it rather than looking like a big sack. Her Quilted Carry-All is exactly what I was looking for. The only problem with it is that it means I can put LOTS of things in it when I take it to shows, craft fairs, and fabric stores. Special pockets so I don't lose track of things, exterior pockets large enough for a magazine or my quilting wish list book, an attached glasses case that holds both my readers and sunglasses and, most importantly, the oversized, attached change purse so I can quickly whip out the credit card. Uh oh!
Great design, Barbara."

Here's a new take on the classic tote, featuring quilt-as-you go with the stitch-and-flip method and a unique bottom-shaping tuck.
Unlike standard flat-bottom totes, the "magic tuck" allows the flat bottom to "tuck" up inside the tote when not in use—great for packing in your suitcase or to make in multiples for grocery shopping. No matter how you "color" it, this tote is a great "green" choice!
Here's the perfect carry-on bag and a great tote to load with supplies for quilting and sewing classes! Use double-sided quilted fabric that you make from your favorite fabrics, following the panel-by-panel quilting directions. Features include:
