I'm not fussed on the border fabric so will substitute that one.
I'll add fabric to the pile on the top left to make a gorgeous and colourful number I saw on Sarah's blog. The pattern I'm using is in the Material Obsession 2 book. I thought the Moda fabric on the top right would make some great pillowcases. The Fairy princess fabric will do for a giant cushion or as the centers to a little girl's lap quilt.
I'm confessing to my obsession with pouches here. I made the mini one yesterday, really I'm trying them all out to find the ultimate most useful pouch for me. You can see a couple of humbugs here.
These two are from A Passion for Patchwork by Lisa Bergene. This is the winner pattern for me, easy to make, handy, useful, holds quite a bit and love the feel of it. You can make them in any size.
This one is a tiny number, it will hold a thimble, thread and small scissors.
This one is the first pouch I ever made and holds quite a bit. It's a Bronwyn Hayes pattern from Red Brolly. I can't find a link but try google and you'll find shops that stock the patterns.
It's been an amazing week for mail, they know my name and box number at the Post office, It is a small town. MJ in Michigan sent me a big surprise, a magazine to enjoy and a couple of pamphlets from exhibitions she's been too as well as the neat card and check out the photo of the Susan McCord quilt. Yes I need to get back to that project! This will spur me on for sure, Thank you MJ for your thoughtful gift!
