This is the official tote bag of the 2011 International Quilt Festival – Cincinnati. It is made from recycled water bottles and other recycled plastics. You can use it until it wears out, and then recycle it again.
It is spacious and sturdy, and features a beautiful contemporary quilt called “Basket of Tulips” by Andi Perejda, Joan Bruce, Barbara Collins and Rene Jennings. This quilt was featured in the special exhibit “In the American Tradition 2010.” It is featured on the front and back, and there are baskets of flowers from the quilt on the sides.
One of the things I love about this tote is that is structured inside. It has a section inside that folds out with spaces to hold three large bottles. The bottom is also reinforced.
