Create a tote (15.5" x 13.5" x 6.5") from an extraordinary art piece- the "Dancing Diamonds" art quilt designed by Bethany Miller of Plum Easy Patterns.
In the morning you will use the template provided in the Gem Bag pattern to create your own unique design. The afternoon will be spent quilting and completing the tote bag.
For a dramatic result, choose two contrasting color ways for your bag. The contrast between warm and cool colors works especially well. You may use scraps in widths varying from 1" to 3" wide. They may be cut from fat-quarters (22" long), or they may be cut from the entire width of fabric (44"/45" long). You may also use pre-cut 2 1/2" strips.
This is an intermediate level project. Confident beginners with rotary cutting and piecing experience may also enjoy success in this class.
A supply list of required items (pattern, fabric, notions) will be sent with your registration confirmation.
