a tote for a swap

Now that it's been received, I can finally show you what I made for our Imagine Circle (do. Good Stitches) swap partner!

I had a really, really hard time sending this away, but I'm glad I did, because she liked it! I noticed from stalking her Flickr photos that she likes plus blocks, texty prints, scrappy things, and rainbow colors. One of the items on her wish list was a tote, plus favorite colors of pink and teal, so I managed to get them all into one tote for her. I even used some of my absolute favorite seed garden print on the back (don't worry, I have more!), and that was the first time I dared to cut into it.

The pattern is the Perfect Quilted Tote by Elizabeth Hartman, and I really loved the pattern. Elizabeth is extremely thorough in her directions (I believe this pattern topped 30 pages!), so it's very easy to follow. I'll definitely be making another one of these for myself!
