Orphan blocks -- we all have them, mine live in a plastic tote that I pull out from time to time and thumb through them for inspiration or they might become a charity quilt or a quick pouch. Many of my scrap blocks come from my friend's scraps so when I make things from them they remind me of them. So for the challenge I wanted to work with some great cutoffs from a friend's bag that she had made.
Featherweight Poppy. I had seen him at several shows and really wanted to get a good service for both my babies before going to Stash Bash in April -- in case I decide not to take the big machine for the retreat. He does great work and got the junk machine that my friend found outside about 6 months ago in full working order.
I also needed more background fabric for my Moda Modern Building Blocks quilt, so we headed on down to Concord Mills and visited We're So Creative. Hubbs was looking around at the shop and found a pack of pinmoors -- a tool I have been wanting to try for a while. (it's pretty cool that he remembered me mentioning them before.)
I will be sure to let you all know how much I like them once I get my next mini put together.
So now that I had treated myself, it was time to get back to making the pouch and I am really happy with the outcome.
I've got 2 more of these to make this month -- doing them in pairs might make things easier actually.
