If you’re new to my 52 zippers project, you can read the backstory, see all the zipper pouches, and download basic zipper pouch instructions here.

So the Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild had a crayon challenge that was due last week. The colors I drew were really not my thing but I figured I shouldn’t bail, so I made a zipper pouch with my colors, killing two birds with one stone. 🙂 We were allowed to add one additional fabric and I chose Essex yarn-dyed linen in Flax.

I am intrigued by how the improv triangles worked out. I think I’m going to try this again in white, grays, and blacks, and making the triangles narrower and more plentiful so it looks even more like birch trees.

I lined it with an Alison Glass Sunprint 2016 called Endpaper.

No one in my house is a big fan of purple so I’m giving this pouch to a friend that has a purple-crazed daughter. 🙂 I’m so glad it’s going to go to a good home!

  • Outer pieces: 9.5″ wide x 8.5″ high. Backed with fusible fleece.
  • Lining pieces: Cut to same size as exterior panels.
  • Zipper tabs: none
  • Zipper: 9.5″ cut

See you back here next week with another zip pouch!
