Wait, it gets better:
Kinda pathetic, right?
I’ve been meaning to make a new one for ages, it just always got bumped down on the “to do” list. That & I never found a pattern I was in love with. There was always something wrong with it- too short, not enough pockets, pockets in the wrong places, difficult to use, tedious directions (this is just a coupon holder after all- I’m not making an award winning quilt here)- point is- there was always an excuse & it just never got done. (Kinda similar to the story about the shoemaker whose family doesn’t have any shoes….)
Until recently when I had a coupon explosion & realized a new holder was now an immediate need.
So I dug through patterns & found a this from Legacy Patterns that I won at a door prize at a quilting retreat.
The overall directions seemed a little tedious, but that day I didn’t care- it had to basic elements I wanted, so there- decision made.
I grabbed two fat quarters I liked (I love the turquoise/orange combo) & set out to make this.
It was surprisingly easier than I anticipated & maybe took me 2 hours?
Overall I love it! There are plenty of pockets for loyalty & gift cards, & the long pocket for coupons is perfect.
Between the quilts I give away & the quilts for customers, it’s nice to make something usable for us for a change.
