Right before we left for our trip, I began working on one of these dusty projects. Last fall I was at my LQS, The Quilt Patch, for something to finish a project and saw a Mosey Tote sample that I instantly fell in love with. Amazingly, I bought all of the supplies necessary on that trip, so when I dug it out of the drawer it came together pretty quickly.
I used a Gobble charm pack by Moda and some yardage for the flap and lining.
I began by sewing most of the charm squares into half square triangles.
Then I played with the arrangement for several hours.
This is after the quilting.
Fully assembled! The flower is machine appliqued. I have only done machine applique once before with o.k. results, but this flower is amazing!
The Mosey Tote is a pattern by This & That created for 5" charm packs.
One more dusty project finished and ready for use. I also finished a Christmas gift for my sister, but I will keep that to myself until after Christmas.
I have been sewing everyday since I have been home from my travels and can't wait to get started with my next project.
