I decided on a fabric for the ruffle tote. It's 100% linen in natural. I let my daughter choose the binding fabric; she said this one didn't look like a diaper bag print. I used the measurements from this pattern, but made some changes. I made my own lining, added key and cell phone pockets, changed the binding, and rather than folding the ruffles in half, I used the serger and did a rolled edge. I also left out the interfacing. I used it all day today and I really like it. I wouldn't recommend this pattern to an absolute beginner as there are no actual instructions, but it's pretty easy to put together.
I also finished my Hope Valley pinwheel sampler quilt top this afternoon. I was thinking about hand quilting this one, but I can't decide. I don't know that I love it enough to put that kind of work into it. I'm not in a hurry to get it finished, so I'll think about it for a while.
Did you have a productive Saturday too?
P.S. Thank you for all the kind comments about the scrappy log cabin. :-)
