Patchwork delight






This week, between projects, I managed to make a small scrappy style patchwork zippered pouch. It has been a while since I used to make them for the shop. This patchwork pouch is an add on to a parcel that will be ship next week.

These prints are some of my favorites and I particular love the versatile prints play good contrast in the pouch! Thanks to the new walking foot tool, the quilting lines turnout even, I keep on 3 m.m. on the stitch length setting, but think that 4 m.m. will work well, too. I'll give it a try next time and let you know how I like it.

I've added the feedsack fabrics Julie brought to me in her recent visit to the feedsack box. Don't you think feedsack fabrics present some humble colors and gorgeous designs? Oh, maybe it is time for another feedsack appliqué work.  I have the design print out and am ready for a little appliqué piece for this summer sewing project.

{Thank You} for all the words of wisdoms and loves that you sent. Simply made me warm and loved by many of you that I have not met. But you are here, my neighbors (smile). Life is not all perfect and cheerful and some of the day is not as easy as I like. I try my best to be honest and share what I am comfortable with you. Mostly, will be lots sewing and good time, enjoy!
