A friend sent my daughter and me really cute wall hangings made from a towel and washcloth.
We wanted to make something for her and collaborated on a large tote bag. My daughter did her great embroidery on an 8 inch center panel …
…and I used my favorite quilt block to frame a picture – 4-½ inch log cabin blocks (1-½ inch center and 1 inch strips).
I used the same pretty pink calico in the blocks and for the backing and lining.
Pale green check seems to go with pink so well and serves as an accent on the bag.
This is a roomy 16 x 20 inch tote and I hope will be used to transport a lot of good stuff.

About 15 years ago, my oldest daughter and I had a booth at a large craft mall. My contributions were all decorative painting and I did a lot of design sketches inspired by photos, greeting cards, calendars, etc. I used my sketch of an Amish girl feeding rabbits to make a 6×6 inch redwork panel.
The log cabin blocks surrounding the redwork are 3×3 inches. The finished piece, made to fit my mini quilt rack, is 12×15 inches.
It’s not the typical Easter bunny quilt, but I like it.
My daughter made the beautiful crocheted doily.
