When I was assigned my partner, I looked over her Flickr account and pinterest to see what she would like. Her tastes are simple and clean, no fussy things. She likes rainbows and linen fabric. I sure wish I would have brought my rainbow scraps from three different quilts with me when I was home at Christmas. It would have been easier to have a lovely rainbow collection. I ended up getting a reasonable rainbow of fabric and some rainbow print on black for the inside lining.

I decided before I start my project for my partner I would do a sample pouch for me and see what bugs need to be worked out. So i picked up some oriental with black, white and red. I have a friend who likes these colors whom I can give it to if it turns out good.

I started to cut out hexagons for my partners pouch. Thinking these are too big for the pouch. I may have to come up with something else. I have the inside for this pouch figured out, but the outside is eluding me. Grrr. Three days later I still am stumped about what to do with these hexies.
