What's better than a new bag? 3 bags!

So, I have been working on my tote for the Summer Tote Bag Swap.  I just couldn't decide which fabric to use, so I made 3 bags using the pattern Mini Bow Tucks by Quilts Illustrated.  LOL.  I really like them.  They are very sturdy.  I used fusible fleece on the outside layer, and I fused craft fuse to inside lining.    They also have great pockets...for you pocket lovers out there.  I quilted each bag differently.  They are 10 inches by 11 inches.

Here they are in all of their glory:



This uses a pretty teal and green from Fig Tree Quilts of Moda.  For some reason, the color is a bit off on these pictures...my apologies.  This is actually a very pretty teal.  I stippled on this one.

This bag features Ginger Blossoms fabric.  I quilted this with a cross hatch.


This bag features Frolic by Sandy Gervais of Moda.  I meandered on this bag with small loops.


Which is your favorite?  I am sending one of these bags to my Swap partner, but I am also going to give one away.  To enter, simply leave me a comment stating which is your favorite. 



THANKS FOR VIEWING MY BAGS.  The giveaway is now officially closed!
