This is a quick post today. I promised a friend to make a set of pot holders for her, way back in December. I finished the first one (I think ) in January. Well, this week, six months later she finally has both of them.
I loved how they turned out. The pattern is from Zakka Style. All the coffee fabrics are from Spoonflower, and the green and taupe fabrics are essex linen. The back is Taupe Essex linen, as well.
I am linking up with Amanda Jean @ Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it up Friday, as this finish needs to be celebrated that it is finally of my to do list!!
Something is in the water for sure. I have several friends at the moment that are pregnant. Congratulations to all of them!! The first one that is due, is my hairdresser, who is having a girl in late June.
I have always loved Juliet @ Tartankiwi’s butterfly paper piecing patterns. It did not take me long to make a decision to make my hairdresser a quilt using these patterns. I am thinking of using a 5″, 8″ and 10″ butterfly, moving up the quilt and the background will be all improv. low volume fabrics.
The first one, the 5″ Butterfly is complete. The main fabric used in this block will driving the color combinations of the bigger butterflies. I am loving the color combinations.
The 10″ butterfly is 1/2 way through. I am keeping with the teal and pink theme.
The last one, I am wanting to pull out that lime green that is scattered in the print, with orange and teal highlights.
If you are interested in Juliet’s patterns, they can be found in Craftsy:
I am hoping to have the quilt finished memorial day weekend…just in time for my last hair appointment before she leaves on maternity. Best news is…this is my May goal for ALYOF…and I have started!!

Last night at 8pm, I realized I needed to come up with 3 teacher appreciation gifts. I went to the good old trusty iPhone/iPad/E-reader stand (tutorial can be found here). Low and behold 60 minutes later, they were done. Woohoo!!
