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!
