Log Cabin Tote Bag

Design director Nancy Wiles cut scrappy strips of assorted Bali Batiks from Hoffman California Fabrics to make two mirror-image Log Cabin blocks. She featured one block on each side of her pieced handbag, adding an extra 1-1/2x12-1/2" strip at the bottom of each block to allow for the bag's depth. A wide band at the bag top and matching handles incorporate the two main colors used in the blocks.
