Dig Into Your Scraps or Use 5″ Charm Squares!
This handy tote bag is made of mini log cabin blocks. It’s a great opportunity to use up fabric scraps. Or, pull out 5″ charm squares you love and make up a bag in whatever colors inspire you.
The blocks are small (3-1⁄2″) but don’t let that worry you. There are no points or strips to match up, so they don’t need to be perfectly accurate like blocks do in some mini quilts.
The tutorial by Barbara J. Eikmeier produces a charming bag that would be great for gift giving. This is a quick and easy project you can complete in a weekend.
The finished bag is 8 1⁄2″ × 9 1⁄2″ × 1 1⁄2″.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
