The Junior Billie Bag is a wonderful quilter’s tote based on an original design by Billie Mahorney, who taught for many years at the Pine Needle Quilt Shop in Lake Oswego, Oregon. Billie moved to Idaho in 2009, returning to the Pine Needle a few times to teach other quilters how to make her bag. In 2015 she gave me her blessing to teach her design, which I have modified slightly.
I am often asked if there is a pattern for the Junior Billie Bag. The answer is no. Billie never wanted to write a pattern for this tote, preferring to teach her design in class where she could demonstrate the special techniques that go into its construction.
