Red, Black and White

 Who doesn't love red, black and white together? We got a new collection in at work and I had to play with it. Very easy block made with 2.5 inch strips, got the pattern for the block out of Julie's Block a Day calender. I grabbed my box of black and white from home to finish this quilt up with more block fabric and borders. It's a large throw size, I'm sure if I ever get it quilted it will be snugly because I plan to put fleece on the back.
 So while I had my box of black and whites out I thought I would use up more of it and make a tote bag. The bottom of the bag is scraps from the quilt, the body of the bag and the lining I didn't like for the quilt but I love together. The handles are also scrap from the bag.
 Finished project.
 Can't have a bag without a pocket, oh and fancy stitching (hard to see in pic's)
And this is how it fits the body when carried, or if you carry by the handles it won't hit the floor.
