farmington feathers

Hi! I'm Amanda, and I'm a guest blogger for the shoppe today! You can find me here or here and I also teach some classes at the shoppe.

I got this pretty feather fabric the other day at the shoppe without any project in mind. I just had to have it! Then a few days later, I saw this tutorial by Anna and I knew that it would be perfect for the fabric.

Anna's samples are cute, but I love a sturdier pouch. I want a smaller pouch that can stand by itself, so I used one piece of 12.5" by 7.5" fabric instead of the two specified in the instruction and quilted the exterior piece with a piece of cotton flannel as the batting. Now I have a perfect pouch for my make up bag!

I still can't have enough of that feather print fabric though, so I picked some fat quarters to coordinate with the print in another colorway for a future quilt project. Aren't they beautiful together?

I chose some LouLouthi, Joel Dewberry, and Robert Kaufman for my coordinates. I will use them with some Essex linen/cotton in white, but Kona cotton in Snow would also work well. You can find them all at the shoppe if you'd like to get a similar bundle!

I'll have to admire that fabric from afar I'm afraid! Love the pouch and the orange/aqua colourway of the feathers fabric!
