Barking Dog Leads to Big Charm Square Tote Bag

A couple days ago I opened the front door and my dog ran out and started barking at a lady parked in my neighbor's driveway.  I scolded the dog and apologized to the lady and noticed she had a big quilted tote bag.  I've been wanting to make a big tote bag and she kindly let me see how it was constructed.
Size is 18 x 14 x 4"

Made from Charm Squares -- 4 across and 3 down.  Pocket is also made from charm squares (4) plus one folded into the triangle shape.

The Bag has a zippered pocket on each side.  Lined with ticking.  Don't you just love ticking?

Looking inside the outside pocket.
 I have a tutorial for the bag in process.

Love that bag, especially with the two zippered pockets. I like the idea of an old fashioned homemade night.

Really nice Sheri. I enjoy making the totes too, pleasant surprise! By the way, your feather quilting is inspiring, I haven't tried that yet!
