A sleeve for my Surface

 I got a new Surface Pro 1 tablet yesterday.  It is super cool.  It has a special "pen" stylus for note-taking, and it has a pretty good handwriting recognition system.  It needed a sleeve so it can come with on trips and to school.  I used this tutorial, the same one I used for Robert's kindle sleeve.
 All three of the fabrics are from Hawthorne Threads scrap packs.  I had to use the typewriter key fabric - it's so cute and perfect for a tablet case!  I lined it with these fun yellow glasses frames. 
 I quilted the exterior and floated the interior, as instructed in the tutorial.  I used my walking foot to quilt an echo of the chevrons in white thread in the middle of each white chevron.  I think it looks pretty cool.  I felt like the chevrons should be horizontal, but that was the short direction on this particular piece of fabric, so I had to piece the chevrons together.  I did a pretty good job matching the pattern!
