bag series: quilt-as-you-go tote

Develop both your quilting skills and bag-making skills in this brand-new class!

There is so much to learn in this quilt-as-you-go version of the log cabin block. "Quilt as You Go" is a method in which the patchwork is sewn directly to the batting (in this case we're using fusible fleece), eliminating the need to quilt the layers together after completing your patchwork.

The block makes up the front, sides and bottom of the tote, then has one solid piece as the back.  The tote is fully lined, with an interior pocket and magnetic snap closure.   Make your own fabric straps or choose 1-1/2" wide webbing.

This class is suitable for advanced beginner students who have experience using a rotary cutter. Students must be able to confidently operate a sewing machine independently.

Required Materials:
- 1/2 yd quilting cotton for center of the log cabin block + back of bag
- (5) coordinating prints, 1/8 yard each OR fat quarters, for the log cabin block

- 3/8 yd of cotton print or solid for the straps OR 1-1/2 yards of 1-1/2" wide webbing
- 5/8 yd of quilting cotton or cotton for bag lining
- 5/8 yds of Pellon 987F 45" wide fusible fleece for body of the tote (if not using webbing, you'll need an additional 1/4 yd)
- 5/8 yd of muslin
- (1) 3/4" magnetic snap set
- (1) spool of coordinating all-purpose thread
