Sew and Go Totes

4751_fcQuilt Designer Kristine Poor has written Sew and Go Totes – a collection of 9 quilted projects which is sure to catch the quilter’s eye! The projects range from a large duffel to a small patchwork wallet.

The popularity of quilted bags and the plethora of beautiful fabrics available today prompted Kristine to develop these totes. These bags also offer versatility; they make great gifts, market bags and diaper bags – the quilter can customize them to their needs. All of the instructions are clearly written with color illustrations and photographs. All you need is your creativity!

Cheryl Johnson of Leisure Arts writes (from her blog “Living in a Material World”): “If you’re in the mood to make a fabulous tote, backpack, bongo bag, or a ginormous bag perfect for weekend packing or, even better, large-project-toting, check this out!”

The book is available now through Leisure Arts, local quilt shops and major book retailers. The retail price is $16.95. (ISBN 1601409257)
