Potholder Pass 1

very pretty potholders and magnets made for me by JenWith.and this is what i made for SewMyLife.these are my first potholders and already know that i don't like using 2 layers of insul-batting. any advice? Potholder Pass 2 begins soon. of course i couldn't help including small knitted things.and if you have time check out my very-first-flickr-mosaic.

pinwheel sampler quilt along : block one.

here is my 1st set of blocks for Rachel's quilt along.only using these four prints. Ginger Blossom flannel. i know that flannel will get bulky. but i am ready to accept what comes. the binding is a pink stripe. cotton. this is my all-time-favorite combination. two layers of flannel. no batting. tied. cotton binding. zig-zig. machine stitched. zag-zag. and if the pinwheels get extremely small i will find another cotton to help out.

AQB1 - for Vanessa

this is my block for Vanessa. she likes traditional star patterns. and said we could choose.just as i was about to cut alternating green and stripe points. i hesitated and fell in love with the green fabric. chartreuse and olive. worried i would end up with a plain star. i remembered the accent squares placed in between the points in this block.before you trim it looks like this. what a great place to do some fussy cutting.

AQB1 - for Dallas

this is my block for Dallas. her blog is For The Journey. the idea for her quilt came from a beautiful photograph she took of trees.luckily for us she put together a tutorial. i love everything about her quilt idea. although initially intimidated by the pattern. it's really easy. and i am very happy with my block.

Basic Black

it still goes with everything.a little blurry. but she likes this next picture. who am i to say it's not a good one.except for using a smaller needle. i did think i followed the pattern as is. but i see here that i worked an extra section.too late now. it's already been delivered and declared finished.
