Contrasting Cabins Staff Color Option
Log Cabin Tote Bag
Design director Nancy Wiles cut scrappy strips from 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 two extra 1-1/2x12-1/2" strips at the bottom of each block to allow for the bag’s depth. A wide band (cut 3" wide) at the bag top and matching handles incorporate both of the colors used in the blocks.
