If all goes well, I'll be bringing it to the Retreat.  :-)   Not quilted, of course.  LOL!

It's "inner Cube" from ItsSewJodi, available from Pink Door Fabrics.  From what I can ascertain, Jodi *is* Pink Door Fabrics; it's her company.

There are component parts: the pattern, the paper pieces for EPP, the acrylic cutting templates, and the fabric.  You can buy them in various combinations BUT Jodi does NOT sell **just the pattern**.  I don't know why.

You can buy the full set (all 4 component parts), the pattern + the EPP paper pieces, the acrylic cutting templates, or the fabric only. But not just the pattern.

I chose to buy the full set, as I knew it was the fabric in the quilt that *made* the quilt for me.  I don't have anything like these fabrics in my stash and although you can certainly make the quilt with your own fabrics, it will look totally different.  I didn't want totally different ... I wanted a quilt that looked like that picture!   So, this was one of the very few times, I bought a complete kit.

I'm continuing to work on my heritage family photo scrapbooks but at night, I like to watch TV and work on sewing.   The sewing I've been working on are my EPP projects. I work on one until I arrive at a point where I am stalled, for one reason or another, then I move onto a different EPP project.  I typically avoid machine piecing because I *know* once I start with the machine sewing, I'll devote more and more time on those projects instead of my scrapbooks!  :-)

HOWEVER, I had been looking for <something> in my sewing room, became majorly distracted and segued into re-organizing the various storage containers in my sewing room and purging those things I have decided that I simply don't want/need any longer.  It's felt fairly liberating.  :-)

One small amount of leftovers from some project ... a strip set of batik & white-on-white that was used in making 9-patches of 1/2" squares.  I had a certain amount of strip sets leftover and just COULD NOT toss them.  But at that time, I also didn't DO anything with them .. I just tossed them into a box.   Well, in the looking for <something>, I came across those strip sets and decided, right then and there, that I would just MAKE the extra blasted 9-patches so that the strip sets wouldn't be laughing at me.  So, I did.

Now, I had quite a few fairly small 9-patches ...  they are only 1-1/2" square!   I needed to pair them with some other fabric.  I came across a nicely deep orange fabric that had been used in some Easter project, as there were carrots printed on the fabric.  :-)   The printed carrots are rather subtle since it is a tone-on-tone effect.   I only had a little bit of it but cut 1-1/2" squares to work with the 1-1/2" 9-patches.  

What I made was another zip pouch.  Not that I needed another zip pouch or that any of my daughters need another zip pouch but I just like making them.  :-)  My absolute, all-time favorite tutorial for zip pouches is the Open Wide Zip Pouch.  I like it because it completely avoids that nasty business at the end of the zippers and allows the zip pouch to be opened to its full amount.  

As a variation, I decided to put a zippered pocket in the lining .. just because I can.   Here is the result of an evening's machine sewing ... a 8-1/2"L x 6"H x 2"D zip pouch.  The boxed corners make the base slightly smaller than the top: 6-1/2"x2". 

Voila ... no more strip sets!  no more small 9-patches!  no more UFO laughing at me!  Bonus: no more orange fabric either!  LOL!
