After much seam ripping (I sewed them all together backwards) and re-sewing, it became this:
I used the Jelly Roll Race method with the 1 1/2 mini jelly rolls. It might become a pillow, or a bag or a table topper, or a doll quilt. What do you think?
I have had a plan for a while to make a wallet and since I just went to an all cash budget system I needed something different than what I was using. I wanted 2 zipper pockets for cash so I could, in theory, separate the cash for the 2 major budget categories I am working with, Household and Grocery. I wrote out my desired dimensions and things I needed to have, like somewhere for the checkbook, receipts and credit cards. And then I just dove in. I had 2 fat quarters from Jo-Ann's to work with and I used a heavier interfacing than I usually do. I used up quite a bit of fabric trying different ways to make the pockets work. So much that when I started putting in the zippers and discovered I forgot to cut the lining, that I had to use some Michael's white fabric I had from making test blocks. :) It turned out pretty much like I had planned, although it could be about 1/2" wider, to make it a little easier to close/fold in half and stiffer interfacing would make it better, or possibly a quilted outside layer, since it is a little floppy. I also "lose" coins in the long zippered areas so I am going to make a little coin purse to tuck into a pocket. It's not perfect and I certainly could not sell these, but it works!
These photos are blinding, I know. They were taken with my phone.
I also made 2 more blocks for the Beginner's Quilt Along. I lost a point in the purple one. I only just noticed it. Oh well.
I am already running out of the brights fabric and the white in the purple blocks won't make it much further. Good thing we are almost done!
I am having ice cream for lunch.
These 2 things are related. :)
P.P.S. I was on week 7:1 Ease into 5 K and had to back up to week 5 due to minor injury. Also did our first round of Yoga(DVD) yesterday ! It was interesting.
