As mentioned during WiP Wednesday, I have a pouch swap this week at out Modern Quilt Guild meeting. It took me all week to do decide what I would make and finally I decided to get a couple of goals out-of-the-way with the one pouch….
- Finish a pouch for my partner at our guild swap.
- Finish the Patchwork, please Week 14’s Triangle Patchwork Box Pouch.
The Patchwork, please design gives you a couple of choices on how to do the main panels; I chose to paper piece the triangle fronts. I also decided that I would choose all blue fabrics with a theme of spots. Are you “seeing spots”?
I would say, if you want a pouch project that you could knock out quickly – this is not it. All up, this pouch was 3-5 hours worth of work. It was not what I expected. It turned out great. I decided to continue the theme of spots for the base, but add a splash of orange for contrast, and then continued that orange for the lining.
