Poolside Tote Swap: Sneak Peek

I am a sucker for a swap. I try to avoid them, mostly because I will make myself crazy with them. A few times a year, I do join in, though. This time it was for a tote bag.
The only problem was that I couldn't find a pattern that I wanted to make. Ultimately, I had to design a bag. I'm not going to share the tote until the swap is finished. I can show you the fun fabrics and the quilting I did, though. My partner said she likes all the colors in the rainbow. I think these rainbow colored sea-turtles are perfect for a poolside tote.
Each of these fabrics is part of the outer tote bag. I quilted each section separately.
This one was the most fun because I took a cue from the fabric to come up with the motif.

I still have some other goodies planned. Because a swap is never a simple affair.

Do you swap that you've been hoping to join?

  1. I just joined the star quilt (mini) swap on Instagram (@shoppershaz). I'm not sure why, because I have a number of minis now and I haven't hung any up yet 😏
