Pouch Swap

I can finally reveal the pouch I made for my partner in the STL Modern Quilt Guild swap. Mine went to Mary Claire, our talented vice-president, who blogs at Splendorfalls. I had so much fun playing with chevrons again. I've got some directions posted here.

The pattern is Perfect Zip Bags by Elizabeth Hartman - using a great method to insert a zipper and construct the bag.
The fabrics were the very modern Echo line by Lotta Jansdotter.
I started this one using a little strip of chevron piecing I had hanging around, but decided the colors may not be exactly my partner's taste. So I get to finish this up for me!
And I received this adorable pouch from Miss Nancy at Tea and Quilts! My grand-daughter claimed it last night and there was a bit of persuasion to get it back!

  2. They both look quite perfect, and both colour and fabric combinations are just gorgeous, the second one my particular favourite. You've done such a good job.

  4. Love your use of Echo for this sweet pouch. The chevron is a perfect idea, and doing it in this small project may just be the push I need to try them.
