About this Quilt
Finished Size : 4" × 9" × 12"
Designed By : Vanessa Christenson
Designer Vanessa Christenson has always loved working with linen. For this pretty Twisted Flower Tote she paired a creamy linen fabric with beautiful pink prints in complementary hues from her Simply Color Collection for Moda. The linen gives the Twisted Flower Tote body and texture without adding stiffness, while the cotton fabrics work well for the twisted flower design and other accents. You can also use any remaining print fabric for the lining or choose a new pattern for the interior as shown here.
Vanessa’s design includes detailed directions for constructing the tote and making the flower. But why stop at one? This Twisted Flower Tote would look lovely with a trio of fabric flowers lining one side or scattered about like wildflowers in a field. Choose fabrics in coordinating prints or use a variety of hues for a colorful design that any girl, little or big, will love! Give one to your favorite maker to use as an on-the-go craft bag or a bibliophile for carrying her books back and forth from the library. Either way, this handy Twisted Flower Tote will be a treasured carryall for years to come.
