On a scale of 10, this is a 12!

This spectacular piece of crazy quilting was done by Jo in NZ in a round robin some years back.  Without a doubt Jo is the best stitcher  I have ever seen.  I have saved it for something special. 
Something that would really showcase it and this velvet bag/tote is my choice.  I have been working on it for a while and it is ready for the lining and handle.

 The back side of the bag is much plainer but the wide black lace shows up better in this shot. There is still more lace and embellishment to be added but it is coming along.

It is large....more of a tote.  I don't change my purses.  Once I have a purse that I like I use it until it wears out.  But I love totes and use them all the time...This is an especially nice pattern that I bought at the Houston quilt show a couple years ago.  I love the outside pockets.. I think it suits itself very well to CQ and will use it again.

Jo's work is amazing. I often wonder if she still stitches. This piece is a beautiful piece and your fabric selection for this bag is perfect.

Oh I missed this post. Your bag is going to be a show stopper.

I miss Jo's blog and her beautiful stitching - nice to see something by her once again. The tote pattern is a perfect showcase for it.
