Using up some large scraps
I have a large stash of Far Far Away scraps. These beautiful fabrics from Heather Ross are some of my favorites. I'm slowly making some progress with the scraps. They are so pretty you can't waste even a little bit of it. I made this pouch at the first Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild retreat back in the fall. I had forgotten about it until this last weekend when I attended a scrap management workshop by the lovely Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts. (More on that and what I actually did at the workshop later this week.)
On the inside I used some pretty green fabric for a nice surprise. I used a new fat quarter for that - so I guess I just made more scraps. But it is a pretty green.
From the top view, you can see both sides of the pouch. Sleeping beauty on one side and the owl and kitty on the other. I can't decide which is my favorite side.
The zippered pouch measures 8" high and 10" wide. It's a great size. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it, but I'm sure I'll find some use . . . or my daughter will.
