Friday Round-up #3

It’s been a busy week in the sewing room, mostly filled with little zipper pouches. I’m not finished with them yet, I have a few more different styles I’d like to try.

I signed up for the new Craftsy class with Elizabeth Hartman, Inspired Modern Quilts: 7 Small Projects with Big Style and immediately started on the Scattered Squares quilt. I adjusted my version as I was making it for our coffee table. Instead of the individual squares being 3.5″ x 3.5″, I made mine 5″ x 5″ to fit our table. I need to add a single border at the top and bottom, not the sides, for my specific purpose. Turns out the colours are not quite right and doesn’t work in that space. Next week I intend to make a few other projects in the Inspired Modern Quilts series and perhaps create something that will suit our living room better.

I started the week working on Michelle Patterns pouches and eventually developed my own style, a red and camel coloured pleated zipper pouch which, I think, turned out quite well. I also wrote a tutorial on how I create the pleats for this pouch.

I wrapped up my Thursday by making a Triple-Zip Pouch from A Quilter’s Table tutorial and a simple curved bottom pouch of my own design. I think Summersville Metro Floral in Orange Zest and Joel Dewberry’s Herringbone in pond are my new favorite fabric combination, I love how the blue pops.

TGIFF everyone!
