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.
