Toting in Style

The Selvedge Tote has been one of my most popular patterns;  folks are seen sporting these at lots of the big quilt shows.  It's a fun design as no two ever quite look the same.  Diana Ruby from Reno has made several and is currently working on another. She sent along a picture of her last one and writes, "The photo doesn't do the colors justice.  The handles were a bright vivid purple...turned out super cute!"  

It *is* super cute! The bright colours chosen for the trim really set off those selvedges nicely.  I have another selvedge bag body ready to trim and I think I will follow Diana's lead and choose vibrant, bold accents.  Thank you Diana for sharing this picture;  can't wait to see your next one!
Why do two colors, put one next to the other, sing? Can one really explain this? no. Just as one can never learn how to paint.


  1. Diana's colours are so cheerful, and I love the green accents in the selvages too!

  2. Wow - those are bright, happy colors. What a pretty bag!
