Quilting is a satisfying technique to use up fabric leftovers. I've made four (and a half) quilts in various sizes, some using scraps and some with purpose bought new materials. My personal preferences are for quilts that include a lot of white space, to frame other prints that have been used. I generally like to keep things simple, so created a few quilted prototypes of my own to showcase traditional piecing and quilting techniques.
The "log cabin" cabin block is a personal favourite. It's straightforward to put together but still has an element of complexity. The silk noile fabric choice helps show this off, but I do think the grey Essex linen is more hardwearing, and compliments the metallic zips better. I've tried to use a quilt-as-you-go method wherever possible - it means that the piecing, quilting and lining are all done in the same steps - as well as keeping the lines of stitching hidden.
These pouches were lined with more leftover fabrics, with any raw edges were finished on the overlocker. In fact, the entire thing was machine made - no hand sewing!
The size of this one makes it pretty good for sock knitting - holding circular needles, multiple balls of yarn, pattern, scissors, crochet hook, stitch markers etc etc.
A little more planning and refining could create something that's potentially sellable. We'll see!
