In my early attempts to make the dresden plate quilt pattern, this pretty little number came into existence. Made from scrap pieces of denim and Ann and Andy quilt fabric from a rag-edged quilt one of my teens made, this quilt hold special love for one farm girl.
Simplyjen has always had a soft spot in her heart for the Raggedy Ann dolls; and for totes. As a little girl, this child could pack a tote like no one I've ever seen; the original 'stuff girl'. She could never leave home without at least one fully 'packed' tote- packed to overflowing! But, totes were not her only passion- rag dolls held a special place in her heart; we never left home without a few of those either.
So to keep this special memory near to us- we memorialized it in a quilt appliqued tote bag. Needless to say--she loves it!
