I have several projects on-going for this week’s work in progress – most of them relate to my February goals. I am linking up with Freshly Pieced.
#3 – 4 sets of Potholders:
I am still working on finishing the set of two pot holders. The chicken ones are completed (and being sent to ClumsyKristel this week) and the blue teapot ones are closer to being finished.
#5 – Triple Zipper Pouch Tutorial (at A Quilters Table)
I wanted to complete a triple zipper pouch, well I have finally decided on my fabrics (Les Amis Fabrics by Patti Sloniger for Michael Miller) and zippers (Red-brown, Taupe, and Orange-Pink).
Finally a project not on my February goals – Our chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild started the Madrona Road Challenge this week, and I finally have the fabric. I am so excited to get started I have been seeing so many great projects. I know the design I want to try, and it should involve my #6 goal for trying paper piecing. I will be trying to also design my own template….ambitious you might say since I have never paper pieced – well we will see :-). If the blocks turn out I will be sharing the idea and the templates (paper pieced) /designs (for non-paper pieced blocks)
I have been so swamped this week at work, this has been the first day I was able to do anything on my many projects, I have in mind.
A while back, I discovered this cool hen fabric by maker_maker at spoonflower.com. I knew this fabric would work for a kitchen item, then I saw pot holder projects in so many books and online. That’s it….a pot holder would be perfect. Here is my first pot holder.
