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.

What’s your current favorite fabric(s)?

Bending Pins: Star Flowers #1

I found the initial pattern for this block in Quilter’s Academy Vol.4, the original was called “Snow Crystals” and I instantly fell in love with it. I added the little square of deep fuchsia in the corner blocks which I really love. I was thinking of using this block (or a better one) for the center of a quilt then scattering blossoms around it adding green leaves. This block was a challenge for me because there wasn’t any step-by-step instructions on how to sew and press the seams. I made a few mistakes which I hope to correct in my next iteration. I used Joel Dewberry’s latest line, Notting Hill in Magenta, I love the depth of colour he used!

I’m really struggling on a name for this block, suggestions welcome!

I’m off to attempt another block. What challenges are you working on?
