Here is a new design for my newsletter subscribers.
Free motion quilting
The first thought was that it would look beautiful as applique; then I changed my mind and I wanted to just quilt it.
Because the quilting involves a lot of backtracking, a good thread is a must. I used Aurifil.
The “practice” sandwich; it was too beautiful to not finish it into something useful.
So that I turned it into a pouch; I think this is one of the best ways to use such practice pieces.
For those more adventurous, I made the triple version below; it should look gorgeous quilted in the same way. You could try it first on paper.

The BEST HANDMADE GIFTS
From my experience of the last years, the most appreciated gift you can sew is a POUCH – without a doubt! For any person on your list, adult or child.
They aren’t only pretty, they are functional and keep the bags (and life!) clutter-free; a pouch does wonders for organization!
If you need some new pouches, check out my pouch patterns below.
Pattern #1 will teach you a WONDERFUL technique (you should know this technique, it produces unique pouches!).
The other patterns will make the zippers your best friends!
