Some answers

Let me answer the questions people have asked about the last posts.

First, Heart and Home is designed by The Quilt Company. Their website is I've seen this pattern offered as a block of the month in various quilt magazines. My local quilt shop put together kits and offered a 6 month class. It was so different then anything else I've ever made. Maybe I was drawn to it because it is similar to Little House Needlework's patterns. I hadn't thought of that, Lee, but it's probably true.

The purse patterns are both from one local quilt store or another. Purses and totes are hugely popular in quilt stores these days. The Bow Tucks Tote (mine is the larger one) is by I'm not sure what quilt store I bought it at, but I've seen it at many stores. has it.

The smaller purse is from the Ellen Medlock Collection. The website is here with tons of bag patterns. Mine is called The Interchangeable Bag. I bought it at my local quilt shop.... the pattern came with the handle. I think there is even a larger set of handles but this smaller one was cute. I liked that I could make a small bag that matched a coat or an outfit. I like a very large purse so I knew I wouldn't be making a purse for every day use no matter how big the handles were!

Thanks for stopping by and asking.

  2. Thanks for this information. I was asking myself where I could find the pattern of the great project bag you showed. Patterns of bags are so popular in your quilt shops but I have a hard time finding any in the quilt shops in my region. Nearly impossible.
