Description


Made this fun pouch for Kerry Green, whose blog, verykerryberry.blogspot.com has given me so much inspiration and has taught me so many skills. Kerry loves feedsack and vintage fabrics, so I used a lot of these in this project. 

The center block, a pattern from the Japanese book My Favorite Patterns 163 (which many English speakers refer to as Patchwork 163), is hand pieced. I did the rest of the piecing by machine because I'm slow at hand piecing. The pouch is extensively hand quilted, including straight lines on the back, which is a single piece of Essex linen.

The pouch itself is based on Anna's Graham's wonderful, free open wide pouch tutorial.

This fabric is so dang cute! Is Essex the color of the linen? I can't find any at my LQS and I really like this color.
