Whew! StL Modern Quilt Guild Pouch Swap
We have a secret pouch swap for the St Louis Modern Quilt Guild this month. My partner is a very talented lady so I have been stressing over what to make for her. Pouches are not something I make a lot. I've probably only made one or two before. I avoid zippers like the plague and I just don't seem to be able to make crisply sewn items.
This pouch is about 7 inches by 6 inches. It is made with a navy blue linen and a piece of sunpainted fabric. You can clearly see the stars and can just see the impression of a leaf on the upper left part of the stripe. It is lined with linen and has fusible fleece inside to give it some weight. The quilting is hand stitching with pearl cotton. I sure hope she likes it!
