Vinyl Project Pouch

The Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild had their annual retreat this past weekend. I didn't have the time to attend but I did join in through social media. One of the prompts was to make the retreat project: a vinyl project pouch using a free pattern available on Moda Bake Shop designed by Kristine of Center Street Quilts. I'm in mood for things of the season, so I grabbed my box of Halloween fabrics to see what I could come up with. 
I had some leftover 3.5" squares of Alexander Henry Ghastlies fabric. I cut some contrast and stitched them up into a simple grid.  
I also pulled out a practice bee block from a bee I participated in a while back. This is free bee block called Alpine available from Blossom Heart Quilts. I've made this block a couple times for bees and I don't know that I've ever seen a finished quilt made with them. 
With all the other things I had to do this weekend, it wasn't until the afternoon of the last day of the retreat that I finished my pouches. Clear vinyl on the zipper side is a nice touch. I added the handles because I need handles. 
It was fun to join in, if only for a little while.

  1. Those are pretty bags. I've never sewn with vinyl, although I did make a luggage tag once that I added something clear from some junk mail.
