I couldn't find any suitable patterns that looked like real carpet bags, so mine is a tote bag made using sumptuous furnishing fabrics. It's big enough to hold folders and books for my classes, with extra long handles to sling over my shoulder. The inside has 3 pockets (large, medium and cellphone) plus an elasticized band to hold my drink bottle upright.
This week, I've focused on assembling this quilt top - I made all the blocks several years ago. Unusually for me, I purchased ALL the fabric rather than including my hand dyes in it, as I found fabrics that worked well with the feature fabric, which is Hoffmanns "Feathers" - you can see it more clearly in the detail shot. It's the centre of the blocks and also the outer border.
