Finally, a summer finish reveal

I made two things this summer that I thought would be inconsiderate of me to show when I had actually finished them, but since this magazine is now arriving with subscribers (and in shops Tuesday)…

I can show you my Kantha tote bag 😀

I used some of the Rustique range by Emily Herrick and obnoxiously paired it with brown. The flap took a couple of attempts to make it the right length but I got there. It’s very simple and closes with a magnetic snap. The handle is adjustable and there’s an internal pocket, plus I’ve hand quilted areas in a Kantha style with perle. Yeah I hand stitched something and I liked it!

Here is the proof it’s in print…

And actually, this looks like an excellent edition of Quilt Now. I am going to be honest and say I didn’t really like the second one as much as the first, but this one is definitely on par with issue 1, if not better. There’s at least 2-3 projects I want to make from this magazine and I’ve only had a quick flick through.

There’s one more reveal to come that I’ve not posted on the blog. And the back of it is just about visible on the next issue page…
