It was a happy day for me when I learned that two of my
quilts would be the featured designs on the latest set of Eco Pouches from C&T
Publishing. I’ve admired these lightweight, colorful zippy bags over the years, and now I get to enjoy them with some of my very favorite designs: radiant, scrappy quilts from my book Wedge Quilt Workshop.
When my book came out earlier this year, I shared many of the
quilts from it on my blog, A Few Scraps, and asked my readers which ones they
liked the best. These two ended up being the favorites for my blog readers, and
they were the same ones that the design team at C&T selected as well. The
masses have spoken!
The big pouch has a dynamic sun and moon design. This quilt
is called Good Night, Good Morning and
is quilted with the words of two songs I like singing to my children: “You Are
My Sunshine” and “Goodnight My Love”. The smaller pouch has a close up of a brightly
colored quilt called Hello Gorgeous,
which is the first pattern in my book and full of delicious free-motion
quilting to enjoy.
I especially love the idea of giving these useful little
bags to my friends because they come with that loving handwritten message on
the small bag. Getting out your drawing supplies? Hello gorgeous! Putting
on your makeup? Hello gorgeous! Gathering up the myriad little toys that
children collect? Hello gorgeous! We can all use a kind word to brighten our
I’d like to publicly thank C&T for making my holiday
shopping a ton easier and also more affordable. Being able to give a gift that’s truly useful
makes a big difference to me. Being able to subtly (or not so subtly) share my
love of quilting is a super-bonus! I expect I’ll be using the lovely, versatile Hello Gorgeous—Eco Pouch Set for a long time, and I hope my friends do too!
