I recently made a couple of Quilt As You Go Pouches by Svetlana Sotak from her book That Handmade Touch.
The pattern caught my eye for it’s cute shape and ability to make use of scraps. I’m such a scrap saver, and I love a project that makes good use of them. It feels like I’m cleaning up my sewing space and making something at the same time…because I am!
This is a great scrap project, because it can make use of any scraps big or small. Both pouches are made from some Jetty and Collection CF leftovers that I have in a basket from some other projects.
I generally tried to color each pouch a little differently, because I was making them as gifts for two friends.
For the quilt-as-you-go part, you make up two panels; one for the front and one for the back. I love seeing how the little details that you worked in to each panel get sewn up into the pouch.
This was my first time making one of Svetlana’s patterns, although I’ve admired them for years. It came together really easily, and I don’t think these will be my last!

A big step for me this year was to start an Instagram feed. Thanks to you Carolynn! After you included a quilt of mine from Quiltcon 2019 in your newsletter highlighting textures from the show. Took the Instagram plunge and I am very happy for doing so. Thanks and a very Happy New!
