Here I am again, swapping like crazy! I just can't seem to say no to the good swaps (PTS, DQS, PLPS). And... I can always use another pouch!
This time I made a little box pouch. I winged it on the size, mostly following the size of my block (I used this block), which really I didn't follow the size listed for the block, I sewed the HST's using Thangles and made the block to fit that size. All in all the pouch measures about 9" x 2" x 4". I was greatly inspired by this pouch... although I didn't follow that tutorial either. I just winged it.
The biggest inspiration for this block was really the stabilizer that I used. It's Soft and Stable (click the link there to purchase some). I received this stabilizer from my friend Donna at our guild retreat a couple weekends back. She's been really thrilled about it and uses it for all sorts of projects. I can say that it sewed up perfectly! It's so squashy when quilted so densely. It really shows off those quilting lines!
I sure hope my partner loves this pouch - It's really me I think. Aqua, grey, and mustard colored linen! What's not to love?
Do you guys swap? Care to share why or why not?
