Lovesme Herringbone

Absolutely! #amh
It started by pulling out my whole stash of Anna Maria Horner fabrics as inspiration for the Triple Zip Pouch Swap.  It was rather overwhelming so I divided it between warms and cools.  Surprise surprise, mother of three girls and I end up owning more pinks, reds, and purples!  Ha! 
All warm AMH
Then I had a brilliant idea, I've wanted to do a paper pieced herringbone for awhile...

Me, looking devious...
This photo was just a coincidence from this morning, but also hilarious, so I had to throw it in!One strip down (4 to go!) #amhDSC_0097
The paper is still intact in the back in this photo.
Before I go further I've asked my Swap Partner whether she is a fan or not...

The plan is to use the leopard for the upper most zip and these zippers.  I almost went with a blue zip to emphasize all those blue highlights in the fabric but when I did so the blues didn't pop as much as the blue zip itself seem to overpower them.

To recap: Anna Maria Horner, paper piecing, pink, selvage, my last last last bits of Good Folks, herringbone...yeah this is going to be hard to give up...

Hmmm...maybe my swap partner hates pink...

I'm not a fan of pink, but I love what you've done. I'm a huge AMH fan, and I think anyone who likes her stuff would adore this - even with all the pink ;o)
