I'm really happy with how this tote turned out for my MIL... i tried a stencil cord border on the top, and it's not perfect (i figured it wouldn't be so i used transparent thread) but whatever, it's probably the best i've done so far  Tongue

yeah, i did the quilting on my machine (hence my craftgasm when it was turning out so well!  Cheesy) i quilted it onto a piece of old sheet, so i drew the lines and stencil on the sheet to help guide me...made it much easier than just going blind
