An Iconic January

An Iconic January

I am kicking off the New Year, by making some cute  paper pieced Icon Blocks! 

These are part of the newest edition of "Paper Piecing 1/4 "  "  , issue 12 Jan- Mar 2017,  the digital magazine by Janeen at Quilt Art Publishing.   {here}

New Issue 12  Jan - Mar 2017
The first block:  Hiking  Icon    design by Quilt Art Designs

 I used some solid Kona cotton, in a charcoal color , for the background.
And some happy purple  Dimples fabric  (Andover) for the hiker.....

 These blocks are easy, and make up quickly!

The second block:     Caravan Icon       design by Quilt Art Designs

I used the same charcoal background, and a few other fun purple fabrics from my stash, to accent the purple Dimples caravan camper!!

Want to see what I made with the blocks?   A simple  zippered pouch!

I sent it as a Christmas gift to a young woman who likes to hike!  It made up into a nice medium sized  12 inch square pouch , with a zipper across the top. 

Lots of space for.....

Room for Colored Pencils and sharpener


A tablet and power cord

 Wouldn't the wine bottle and glass icon be cute as a 'WINE BOTTLE' mug  rug, when you add it to a bottle of wine as a gift?!  

I'm off to my sewing room!
