It has been a while since I posted. Another viral cold and cough kept me down for a few days. I still managed to start another quilt. I have finished piecing the 20 blocks. Now all I need to do is add the sashing and border. This time, I think I am going to piece the backing. I will post more about this quilt when it is completed and gifted. This quilt was made from scraps and a few purchased fat quarters.
During my down time, I found myself looking at different ways to make pouches. I found this great tutorial by Jen, of Shabby Fabrics. It is a tutorial on making a boxed zippered pouch. There are quilte a few boxed pouch tutorials on Youtube, but I chose to try out the tutorial by Jen. Jen’s directions are perfect. She makes it look so easy…in fact, it turned out to be easy.
8″ X 10″ Outer fabric, lining fabric, heavy iron-on fusible
I had enough of the two fabrics to make another pouch. This time, I followed the tutorial of Alanda Craft, since I have used her pattern before. The measurements were adjusted to fit the fabric that I had. I also found a gray scrap to make the top-front portion of the zippered pouch.
These makes a nice set.
