Today I have a Quilt Block Pocket Tutorial to share with you.
I posted it awhile back over at the Moda Bake Shop but today I’m brining it home. (I love this idea and have been making quilt block pockets like a crazy person ever since posting it!)
If you are anything like me after you finish a quilt you end up with a few orphaned quilt blocks…and then you don’t have the heart to throw them out…so you keep them…and they wait for another chance to shine.
Well, recently I found a fun way to let those orphaned blocks shine! Add them to an apron, bag, skirt, or girls dress as a pocket and let them be the be the center of attention.
*A quilt block
*A piece of fabric the same size as your quilt block to use for lining
*An item to sew your new pocket onto
#1. Find yourself a quilt block that needs a good home. Square it up and then cut a coordinating piece of fabric the same size as your quilt block.
#4. Flip your block right sides out and press flat.
#5. Pin your pocket on your item.
AND NOW YOU HAVE:
A new home for a deserving quilt block and a new item with a darling pocket detail.
*Note all the fabric for the quilt blocks, dress, and collar come from Basic Grey’s Little Black Dress 2 line.
We were so happy to visit here at the Moda Bake Shop today!
