A finished Arizona pencil pouch

A few months ago, I entered a contest and actually won! Woo! I am in the process of making a Japanese x and plus quilt with a gorgeous fat quarter bundle of Arizona by April Rhodes for Art Gallery Fabrics. Can I just say... AGF=heaven. But anyways, I have things cut up for that quilt, and decided to use some of the scraps for a pencil case. You never know when you're going to need your colored pencils in college. ;)

I made a simple quilt-as-you-go panel, squared it up, attached the zipper, and stitched up the sides. These are always quick and gratifying projects! And it only took about a half hour.

My lovely friend Khrystine and I (if you're reading this, hey girl!) had a sewing night at my house with tea, giggles, and of course stitchin' and bitchin'. I made this, and she made a beautiful pouch too with her scraps. Sometimes I have so many ideas in my head, it's a relief to have someone to tell them to.

This fabric line is so bold and pretty, I cannot wait to finish the quilt. Now if I could only buy the right amount of fabric when I go to the shop...
