It's the first time I will be going and I will be meeting with a lot of other quilters and sewists.
There will be a meet up on Saturday and there's a swap of zipper pouches organised. I made an open wide zipper pouch because they are my favourite zipper pouch to make.
I emptied my turquoise scrap glass and pulled these aqua and light turquoise fabrics and pieced them together and quilted straight lines in light grey.
With all these tone-in-tone colours I thought the pouch needed a bit of a 'bang', so I added a bright orange zipper.
I think this is very suitable and it turned out even better than I had imagined.
For the lining I used some colourful fabric with directional dots that add a bit of a surprise when you open the pouch.
I love those little zipper ends, really finished off the zipper nicely.
So this is going to be for one lucky swap partner. We all put our pouches in a big bag and everyone just picks a pouch randomly. I like that!
I will report back from the actual event when I'm back next week!
