Decided to start a zipper quest ... Inside pockets on totes, pouches and the like. Today I made a pouch to go with my tote that I showed previously (http://cherylquiltnut.blogspot.com/2015/07/tote-for-me.html).
This is the pouch..
I used this tutorial .. http://www.jedicraftgirl.com/2013/06/my-favorite-zipper-pouch-tutorial.html.
Very easy to follow.

I decided to do the Fat Quarter Shop's "Little Joys Quilt Along" (http://fatquartershop.blogspot.com/p/little-joys-quilt-along.html). Think I'm loving the process of following the quilt alongside! It's all about the small steps. Here's the first blocks I did.

KI don't know about everyone else, but I can't understand why covers for ereaders are so darn expensive. To that end I decided to make myself one. This is the second one I made, the first has been trashed ... Did not fit well at all, but again, I learned a lot through the process. I'm gonna make another one at some point which I'm sure will be better.
In life as well as quilting, there is always something to learn. One of the things that has bugged me for years is how bulky seams get. Somewhere along the way I found this tutorial (http://lavieenrosie.typepad.com/lavieenrosie/2012/04/seams-a-poppin.html).
Once I understood the process it was simple and quick so I ended up making a bunch using my 2 1/2" scrap squares.
Now to join them in the same manner! That's the next challenge which the tutorial also includes.
