Post-Summit Swap

It's been awhile since I've had a good ole fashioned sewing post. I've been missing sewing there's no denying it which was why I was so excited to participate in the Post-Summit Swap. After a little snooping around I chose this group of fabrics for my partner. Like myself she is adverse to purple but I had to throw in a little because I think sometimes it's needed. Also I really just used a little pop of the purple. 

I made a quilted pouch doing a little improv piecing and quilting. I have to admit one little mistake but I think it's a happy one, I sewed the front on upside down. I meant for you to see more of the Grey La Dee Da fabric on the top but I actually like the lighter green and the way the block is spaced more at the bottom of the pouch. I really had fun with the quilting and loved mimicking the Curly Scribble fabric in the white. There's a little something extra in the bag for my partner I hope she likes it! 

I have my favorite swap of the year coming up our guild Holiday Swap. I'm so excited about my partner this year I can't wait to show you the fabrics I get to work with!!

This turned out so nicely! I like the green at the top and that tiny piece of purple in-between the grey and the red striped fabrics.

The quilting is fun, and so is the new bag! I bet your partner loves it!

Hi Petra -- I got this in the mail today and I LOVE it! It's so cute and you used purple in a way that was perfect! And thank you for the journal -- so sweet of you to include it :) Can't wait to start using it!
