Friday Finish

The wedding quilt blocks are completed, so it’s time to begin playing with the layout. I hope to do some of that today, and maybe even begin sewing the top together. I could really use a big room with a design wall about now, but my floor space will have to do.

I had this scrappy batik runner in my stash of tops that need to be finished. The runner is made from leftover scraps from a larger quilt that I made for my daughter. I finished it last night, stitching the binding while watching a show.

After I had prepped the batik runner, I decided to have some fun and make this cute little pouch. A friend had sent me the fabric, which I absolutely love. It’s so bright and cheery! It’s about a 9-inch bag, and I think it may be the new home for some of my sewing notions. The pattern is a Missouri Star Quilt Company tutorial called the Zipper Pouch. They are quick and easy to make.

Speaking of sewing notions, I decided to sign up for the The Fat Quarter Shop’s Sew Sampler (I have always been a sucker for surprise boxes) and this is one of the notions I received in May’s box. I think I’m going to be using these often, since it seems I’m always hunting down bobbins to match my thread.

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

  1. Great little pouch! is that one of Hoffman’s new modern batiks? Looks great with the print! (The picture for the your runner didn’t load, would love to see it)

    1. Thanks, Paige. The fabrics for the pouch came from a friend, so I’m not sure of the line (no markings on the selvage). Sorry the running pic didn’t load. I’ll check on that.

  2. I do all my block laying-out on the floor too 🙂 Your runner and pouch are both beautiful. I love the colours. That bobbin keeper is a great idea. Thanks for linking to TGIFF this week!

    1. Thanks, Leanne! I consider block lay-out an aerobic activity. My cat considers it creative play. Haha!

  3. Yep, I’m another floor designer. =) Sometimes, I even run out of floor! I like the pouch and the pretty little runner. Thanks for using tags on your posts. I find those SO helpful.

Thanks for visiting my blog! I enjoy hearing from you and I'll answer each of your comments, so let me hear from you!
