I did finish up the borders I wanted to add, pieced the back, and got it layered for quilting, but then life got in the way and I had to set this project aside.
I will definitely get this finished as soon as I'm able to!
Meanwhile, I wanted share something else I finished up this week that is scrappy, fun, and also useful!
I found a tutorial on Moda Bake Shop for a Vinyl Project Pouch, by Kristina Brinkerhoff. I've been wanting to make one because I have some vinyl to use up. I also had most of a mini charm pack of Picnic by Bonnie and Camille and a few leftover bits of a B&C Hello Darling layer cake to use up.
The main part of the pouch was made like a mini quilt - a 36 patch block, batting, and a piece for the backing cut from a fat quarter.
I quilted that -
Then pieced the front out of the layer cake leftovers, added the zipper and vinyl, plus binding, and it was a pretty quick finish!
Really the hardest part was cutting the vinyl accurately, because it slips around on the cutting mat and is so hard to see!
This pouch ended up to be about 12.25 inches square, a good size to lay flat in a suitcase. (More about actually putting it in a suitcase to come!)
Happy Sunday stitching to everyone!
