Finally, I got this Scrappy Pouch using the quilt as you go method tutorial up! It was highly requested on my Instagram and I just had to do get myself to record and edit it. 

This is the perfect project to make with coordinated scraps you have leftover from a quilt project. 

Of course, you can use any scraps, but I do believe using coordinated scraps makes prettier pouches!

And if you ever made quilts using Tula Pink fabrics, you are surely to get bright pretty pouches. I absolutely love seeing the peek of fun motifs on my panels. 

I made many different panels and there are so many ways you can make a quilt as you go panel. In this tutorial I’ll teach 4 ways, but I’ll be sure to make more tutorials for more in the future.

Using up scraps from a finished quilt

I made tons from my leftover scraps of my 100 days 100 blocks quilt . And these are definitely not the last.

I am surely keeping this quilt for myself, but I have made lots of pouches that I have gifted to many of my friends and family.

I have gifted many of them and seeing my pouches here and there when my friend opens their bags or seeing them in my family’s home feels like finding easter eggs in the spring! 

Trust me, these are easy to make, use up your scraps and make the perfect gift!

Quilt As You Go Panels 

I am using the quilt-as-you-go (QAYG) method for the pouches. In this tutorial, I teach you how to make 4 different quilt as you go panels.

The QAYG method is perfect for a small project like this as you can skip the quilting part. The batting gives it a little structure for the pouch and you can still have all the seams hidden inside and out.

  1. I signed up already and paid for your free motion boot camp course.
    I would like to know if I need to watch the course now or if can I save the course for a rainy day. I like to go outside in my yard when the weather is so great here in B.C. Canada.

    Please reply,
    Thank You,
    Donna Brown
