Triple-Zip Pouch

Bending Pins: Tripple Zip

I joined yet another Flickr group this year, the Triple-Zip Along with Debbie from  A Quilter’s Table.  I couldn’t resist using my current favorite fabrics by Joel Dewberry, Notting Hill in Magenta. I wanted the medallion to be featured on the front with the orange band at the top so my pouch is a little larger than most. I think I’d like to make a triple-zip with a square bottom next, maybe a zip on each side as well as the top… If you click on the photo you’ll get a bigger image and will be able to see the little birdie zipper pull which I picked up at Quilt A Bag  with my friend Tara yesterday.

You can check out other Triple-Zip pouches here.

What’s your current favorite fabric(s)?

Parcheesie in progress

16-patch in progress

16-patch blocks done!

25 more corner blocks to go.

I really enjoyed working on my Parcheesie quilt top today. I thought those tiny 1″ 16-patch blocks would drive me crazy but I really had fun, especially since all my seams matched! In one recent Craftsy class, the teacher pressed her seams open. I would never have been able to match my seams if I’d done it that way. I pressed them to one side, as traditional quilters do, and they snugged beautifully. I really love the corner blocks too, they’re essentially a type of log cabin.

Earlier this week I was contacted by the Education and Events Manager at Juki America Inc., they’d like to feature me in one of their Newsletters! I’d love to get my hands on one of their domestic quilting machines in the TL line!

Also this week, my triple-zipper bag was featured on A Quilter’s Table with other wonderful triple-zip pouches. It’s been a great week and it’s not even over yet!

P.S., I’m linking up with TGIFF because although this quilt top isn’t finished, the 16-patch blocks are done and tomorrow, the corner blocks will be finished too! 😀
