I have been enjoying participating in two different online quilting bees this year. It's my first time taking part in a quilt bee (of any kind!), and now I fully understand the appeal - the chance to sew with friends (old and new!).

My favourite patchwork is scrappy. Pair that with the delight I have in re-purposing items and you end up with a sweet zipper pouch!
|Tiny scraps pieced together to make a wee butterfly on a background of near white fabrics and quilted onto a remnant of batting, make the front panel of a zipper pouch.|
I chose low volume (fabric that reads as white) scraps, to sew onto a leftover piece of quilt batting. After piecing, I did some straight stitch quilting and then cut a front and back panel for the pouch.

Prior to moving at the end of April, I was happy to sew a couple of rainbow coloured, scrappy quilt blocks for the second quilt bee I joined this year. The block is called Scrap Jar Star and Amber at Gigi's Thimble, has a wonderful tutorial (click here), for making them.
