Zakka Style Zig Zag Tote

Here is my tote and I love it!  I wanted a large tote and I might have made it too large (18″ x 15″ x 8″).  Is that possible?  It can’t be too big, can it?  I guess I’ll find out when I take it on my next flight and try to fit it under the seat in front of me.

Those zig zags were tricky!  I decided to do something different on the other side.  I looked through the book Modern Blocks which is another stash book  by c & t publishing.  A lot of different blocks caught my eye, but I decided on BINARY  which is the 8th of 99 blocks in the book.

I did a few straight lines of quilting across the design which really show up in this picture but are not nearly so evident in “real life.”  I also quilted around each of those colored squares and rectangles which does not show at all.

I got this done in time to link it up with the other quilters who are sewing along and hoping to win some great fat quarters this week.  Tomorrow begins another project and it’s one of my favorites from the book Zakka Style.  Please come back and see my version of “The House Pouch”.  Amy from During Quiet Time is going to hostess this project this week.  Check her blog tomorrow morning.
