Trick or Treat, I think Treat!

I arrive at the International Quilt Festival on Halloween. That's a treat in itself, but for an added bit of fun I tackled The Trail Tote (both sizes- one for me  one for a gift) by Noodlehead for Robert Kaufman.

I couldn't resist the fun Halloween fabrics I had to play with. I also modified the interior,
 adding a divider pocket with an additional magnetic clasp so I can stash my iPad separately from my keys and wallet.

Happy Halloween All!
Fabrics: Large tote- (exterior) Spooktacular 100 Maude Ashbury by Blend, (zip pocket) Remix Ann Kelle for Robert Kaufman, (piping) Cotton & Steel Moonlit-picnic-luminescence-starlight-sparkler, (strap) Zen Chic commas by Moda, (interior) Quilt Soup for Henry Glass, (divider pocket) Michael Miller Spa Ikat.

Small tote- (exterior)After Dark De Lion Design Group for Alexander Henry Fabrics, (piping)Heath for Alexander Henry Fabrics, (lining interior)Slime Time by Studio e Fabrics, (strap) nylon webbing in black
Zippers by Zipit (Etsy)

Now all I have to do is fill my bag with more treats from the International Quilt Festival.


  1. What cute bags! love the ghosties fabric and the comma for the handles.

  2. Those ghosts are hilarious! I think it's great that you used this for your Houston Bag, because going around and around to all those booths seeing what people have in them is a lot like going door-to-door, isn't it?

    Glad you had fun at Quilt Festival--


If you don't speak up, I won't know what's in your mind…….
