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.
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.
