PQ 14.2 Pink Tint

RULE ONE: some shade of pink must dominate this week’s project.

Well how perfect is that? Tish does come up with some fun themes!

It wasn’t hard for me to think of a project. I’ve been busy with several projects already this year. Since I often get to travel the 5 hours (one way) to the studio, I’m often taking three or four projects to work on when I need a break from playing on the longarm or re-organizing our studio space after moving the longarm. This means I had to add another of these to my stash:

My new project bag was made using pink 2 1/2” squares to make a pretty pink patchwork backing behind my clear vinyl window. Then I had to try a couple of different projects in the pouch so I know how much space I actually have in my zippered 15” x 20” pouch. I had to try out a couple of different projects in the bag. I’m happy with the size which was determined by the first zipper I could find 😉

I didn’t have a pattern so I made the patchwork block and then added borders. I pulled more scraps and leftover bits to make my window front. Once I inserted the zipper, all I had to do was sandwich and quilt my backing piece. Then I squared everything up and added my binding. I did do the binding by machine this time since I’m pretty rough on my pouches. They often get stuffed full with 3 or even 4 projects if I’m travelling.

I’m so glad you took some of your time to view my little window fronted project pouch. Thank you. 😉 Carol

Thank you Trish and Kim for another fun challenge. 🤗

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Hi Carol! This are so handy and I can easily see why you need these. They sure help keep all of your ongoing projects organized for you. Five hours, one-way, drive to the studio?! I complain to myself about 1.5 hours. I’ll have to keep you in mind next time I’m mumbling about it. Great project! {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    1. Thank you Roseanne. My project pouches are a necessity with travelling. The drive isn’t so bad since I have a break when I’m on the ferry. Now we are allowed to get out of our vehicles again so I stretch my legs and walk a bit. 😉

    1. The side gusset works Kathleen. I made one with wedge shaped side gussets so I could carry larger things as well as my flat pieces of fabric (a box of buttons and other notions. Just had to do a wider binding; 2 1:2” rather than 2 1/4” so I could hold the extra layers where the wedges joined the front and back, just under the spot where the zipper was. Hope that made sense? 🤪
