My fav category in Blogger's Quilt Festival is ROYGBIV. I'm sure you are not surprised by that.

That is one of the reasons I'm entering Paint Drips. You can find the original post here and some progress pics here.

The pattern comes from Quilter's Mixology. I made it smaller (50%) and added few more colors and curves in. It was quilted by my friend Monika and her quilting took it even step further. I just love her work. 

I'm happy to see it every day hanging in our hall. 

Enjoy the festival!

WiP planning and thinking

There is not much progress on my Q4 list but at least I can show you these panels for Lucy Hobo bag.

Beside that I had to think hard how to add Snowalong into my plans. I might have solved the problem, lol. You haven't heard about Snowalong? Go check it out! Will I have something to link up for Paper Piecing Party? We'll see.

There is also Blogger's quilt festival starting on Friday. What quilt will I enter and what category? Hmm hmm, decisions, decisions.

I hope I will not find any exciting new sew alongs or tutorials in my Bloglovin feed as my plate is full and my productivity is low :)

MM - bunny pouch

I almost gave up on Monday Makers this week but I picked up the bunny and finished it off. I wasn't sure how I should make it so I went into my scraps and zippers and found an orange quilted piece which matched one of the zippers. Matchy makes me happy.

So there is extra quilted bottom and nothing fancy for the back.

Are you curious about the lining? Oh yes you are! :) I found that orange solid so it's super matchy. Love!

I'm not starting up something new this Monday. I have plenty going on but I took some pictures along the way and I plan on putting tutorial together so you can all make this easy one exterior piece pouch yourself. Stayed tuned if you interested.

The bunny embroidery pattern can be found here. This one was enlarged and made by my daughter so there are few stylish upgrades, lol.

Le Challenge - Mix

This month's theme for Le Challenge is Mix. So I mixed some scraps, techniques, patterns and sizes. The result is pretty good if you ask me :) and I'm trendy with Xses which happen to be November theme. Inspiration for you maybe?

I tried sort of matchstick quilting which gives the pouches really nice texture. There is no front or back. They are double sided.

If anyone is interested in dimensions: the tall one started as 45x21cm and the other 31x24cm.

Yes, they are made out of one exterior piece so there is no seam at the bottom.

The inspiration comes from Leanne @ She can quilt. She is the queen of matchstick quilting and texture. She currently hosts Scraptastic Tuesday which is filled with scrappy projects and you can also join monthly link up there. It is worth checking out!

Not only I prefer to match zippers, I also like when the lining goes well with the exterior. Yeah, I'm that matchy orientated. Since these are my current fav pouches I'll link them up with Purse Palooza as well.

Plus TGIFF and Crazy mom quilts.
