This is one of the many Quilted shopping bags I have made over the last few years. I changed over from doing bed quilts and other large quilted items, in favor of doing smaller quilted pieces. These are what I call 3D quilted items. They are made to be used on a daily or regular basis, and are functional, as well as nice to look at. I have gravitated to canvas as the base structure as it is stout and will stand up to wear and tear usage. You will need a machine that is capable of doing some heavy sewing at whatever speed you are comfortable. If you go too fast you will break needles. I solved the problem last year by buying some Juki Industrial machines, but I used to use a Bernina 1008 Mechanical for a few years and just went slow and steady and accomplished the job.
