52 zippers #16: Crayon challenge

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!
