Patchwork Please Triangle Patchwork box pouch

Happy dance for several reasons:
1. A project started and finished in the same week
2. Done in the right week for the sew along
3. All scraps used including the zip from the vintage haberdashery I was recently given.

Lori Holt is hosting this week's sew along and I fell in love with her version so I photocopied the foundation piecing pattern and put it on my sewing table. every day I've sewn a little, but on Tuesday I finished a client quilt, so that gave me carte blanche to work on this and a ST2 bee block.

This has turned out well and I sewed it at the same time as some Bee blocks and foundation pieced blocks for Swedish Bloom Time quilt from the same book.

If I were to make another of these box pouches, I would use the correct length of zipper and quilt the bottom of the pouch so it's more sturdy.
