Project Teen - Finding Inspiration!

Last summer, my friend Melissa from the Polka Dot Chair contacted me and asked me to machine quilt a few of the quilts that would be published in her upcoming book, Project Teen, of course, I was supper flattered, honored and excited for Melissa! I knew back then that the book would be awesome, because everything that Melissa shares on her blog and her patterns are always fantastic! 
Project Teen, Melissa's new book, is just hitting quilt shops and it's just as fantastic as I had imagined, she's got 21 projects for the teen in your life!
Melissa asked me today to share a little peek into Project Teen, but when I saw the adorable tote patterns, I knew I had to make some...... and even though it's only October, I was so inspired by her totes that I made three of them, and they are going to be Christmas gifts! See!! I told you this book is full of inspiration!
The patterns and instructions in this book are easy to follow, if you remember this post, it's totally out of my comfort zone to sew anything that isn't a quilt, and Melissa's instructions made it easy to make these little pouches.
Like I said before, it's always so humbling and I feel so honored every time I get the opportunity to machine quilts for friends' whose books are to be published. In Project Teen I was able to machine quilt three of the quilts;
