A few times a year Great Grandma Goobin (don’t ask, just what we call her) requests a new ciggie pouch. The last one should probably be burned.
So I set to make her one for Christmas.
I love Improvisational Patchwork for so many reasons, but I constantly end up far off from my original mark. I am not a sketcher, so everything is left to fate. I started out thinking itty bitty wonky star. Same fabrics as the Tumbling Blocks Pillow (because I am in LOVE), minus Chambray and add linen (thanks for all the comments btw on this pillow! I’ll try to get a small instruction together or check out “wee bits quilt” in Last Minute Patchwork and Gifts” for the technique and stack them).
I don’t think I’ll ever have a machine with out triple stitch on it.
Two Anna Maria Horner’s representing here. Some of her new flannel and some Drawing Room inside and on the back.
The pillow (that is upside down I see now) went to G.G., Roan’s OTHER Great Grandma. She’s Norwegian, and a bit less into the Modern scene if you know what I mean?…but such a special lady. The Heather Bailey is a perfect addition to her sunfilled mellow yellow living room that I spend chatting with her. I was so happy to see my vision placed on her couch!
Two wonderful people in my life among the others I’m blessed with.
