Different Strokes for Different Folks


Earlier this year, I signed up for a crafty exchange with Nancy of Blogging, Near Philadelphia. From what I could figure from Nancy's blog, she is a fan of Civil War reproduction fabrics. Most of my friends know that CW fabrics are way outside of my box and almost never find their way into my home. The only time that I will work with them is when I make a gift for someone who likes them. Thankfully, I had this in my stash (winnings from a giveaway a long time ago).

Nancy tells me that she loves it! I'm so happy that she does -- it makes working with these fabrics worthwhile!

The pattern is called Charm Party Tote which I found in a quilt magazine a number of years ago. Since then (as you can tell from this photo), I'm made quite a few of them...

I agree with you on the CW fabric, but sometimes it's worth using to make someone else happy! Great job on the tote.

I am sure she will love it. Nice job!

I do love it and am making myself wait until autumn is a LITTLE closer to use it -- the colors seem so right for fall!
