see what 15 minutes of play or "dump quilting" can yield? I grabbed my scrap basket and pulled out some greens and a couple other colors and just sewed them into fabric pieces.
then I cut those into 8 inch squares.layered it with thermal batting and a backing,
and quilted straight lines.
trimmed up to 7 inches and added binding and loops
voila~. handy dandy potholders. made 9 of them in about one hour. not too bad. all I have left to do is find some greens to bind and then will handstitch down the back of the binding. some nice handwork. (I know, I am one of those crazy women who doesn't mind hand sewing binding. I find it relaxing)
hmmmmmm..... now where are those towels I bought last year to applique? Can I make a matching set? green trees? says holiday but not too obvioously so can be used year round.
I must keep my purchases in a seperate box for easy retrieval. note to self..............or do I go shopping again? LOL
