Scrappy tripalong addiction

I think I've recovered from my scrappy tripalong addiction that has consumed me for the last couple of weeks.

You may have also got sucked into the madness following Bonnie's great tutorial.

My first one I made was using 6 strips in each block from fat quarters etc.

The second one, I decided to use jelly rolls as it saved on the cutting and went for an 8 strip layout as it meant I could get the best use of the fabric.

I loved making them, but think I've got it out of my system now.

I also made a little pouch for my new toy, an Ipad Mini. I played around with a zippy pouch and lined the outside with wadding and the inside with a heavy interface. I wasn't sure what dimensions to use to make sure that with the seams and extra weight of wadding etc wouldn't make it too small so I started off with pieces 7x10 inches and it came out spot on first time!

I forsee a few more of these in my future!
