16 pretty little pouch, part 2.

5.12.2011

I made an extra pouch for my Pretty {little} Pouch Swap partner last night.  I had rainbows on the brain after seeing all of the awesome blocks that Rachel got back for her do.Good Stitches quilt.
I basically just cut 8 wonky strips, sewed them together in two sets of four, cut them in half again along the width and sewed them together a second time.  After I finished and trimmed the block, I thought it still needed a little pop so I added a red border (which is very uncharacteristic of me...I never use red!).  I used the gray Heath to bring it up to size and as the back of the pouch to calm down the bright block a little.  I quilted it in white along the width of the pouch and around the red border.
 I used the orange Painter's Canvas by Laura Gunn for the lining, and after auditioning a few different colored zippers, chose a lime green one that matches the green fabric in the block.
 Now I just need to add in a few surprises and ship my package of this weekend!
p.s.  Here's a link to the other pouch I made, in case you missed it!
