Woven Fabric Potholder

One of the guilds I belong to is having a
Potholder Swap.
I wanted to do something different.
So I did a
Woven Fabric Potholder.
I think it does look better in person.
It was alot of fun to do.
I can see more of these in my future.

Quilt Guild Round Robin

I am participating in a Round Robin in one of my guild.
Someone else did the center medallion and I added the first border.

Great Day

I had to work a half day today and then  a friend met me at work and we were off!
We went to a Quilt Show in Highland, Il. Then we went to Rosemary's Fabrics and Quilt Shop also in Highland.
I went in search of fabrics I need for a medallion quilt round-robin I'm doing for one of my guilds.
I had really expected to have to settle for something to use for the next border, BUT I found the perfect fabrics and can't wait to get started on it.


I think I hear the sofa calling my name. It needs someone to cuddle up with and take a nap.
Ok I'll go.... It will be hard but I'll do it......

Tis The Season Stitch-A-Long

Well I finally got my book for the Tis The Season stitch-a-long. I've got my fabrics all except for the borders. I have my borders picked out but want to complete the first 2 or 3 blocks and try them on with the borders before buying.
I did not want to go with the traditional red and green Christmas colors. So I selected these. The border fabric matches and does have ornaments on it, so I think it will work.
