Summersville Sewing

Inspired by the orange zip I bought at the Haberdashery, I made this start on a quilted zippered Summersville pouch that has been floating around in my imagination ever since I saw Lu's amazing fabric.

Hopefully I will manage to get both panels quilted tomorrow - not sure how yet.  Any suggestions? FMQ squiggles? straight lines?

Linking up to the Manic Monday Linky Party over on Sew Happy Geek.

Hoping you have a lovely day.


  1. We have lots in common. I LOVE Summersville and orange! My next quilt after Ruby is going to be with this fabric. Your pouch will be lovely!

  2. ohhhh I love summersville, Happy pouching

  3. Your pouch will look great in Summersville. The only problem you will have is in deciding what to keep in it! Di x

  4. Oh i love Summersvile - straight line quilting please!

  5. Ohh I love Summersville, I seem to be stock piling it at the minute x
    Straightline quilting ;-)

  6. Lol, I love that you bought something and then worked your way up to using it

  7. I agree with the other comments to use straight lines.

  8. Yum! I'd do square grid quilting on a pouch that size.

  9. Summersville is AWESOME! Sigh, I am on a budget otherwise some of that beautiful fabric would be in my possession. Do enjoy it!!!

  10. Gotta love Summersville, I've got a couple of bits here...if only I had time to play! Talking of which, so sorry I've not been in touch, had busy weeks with Felix's birthday and my hen-do! Quieter next week, fancy having a go at meeting up?! x

  11. I have had people ask if I make quilted bags and I've never tried it. I don't know why.
    I bought some cute material today to make a bag for my middle daughter's 21st birthday. I don't want to make my usual plain old fabric bag so envisioning in my mind how to make it differently.


I can't tell you how much I love a comment. It makes me smile one huge great big smile.
