While my granddaughters were over I decided we would make a present for their Mother.
She had mentioned that she wanted potholder to hang.
Well, the light bulb went off and I got her girls to pick some fabrics.
Good chance to discuss print scales and color contrast, as in "No! That black fabric is not good for this!"
What a fun and fast project!
All that was left when Mama arrived to pick them up was finishing the binding.
I gave them a needle with plenty of thread and sent them off.
Is there anything more precious than a handmade gift from your children?
Well...yeah, maybe there is - but this is really cool too.
Mama was so surprised and so happy! Isn't the print with the blender just perfect?
Now - on to my Big Project. Getting this quilt quilted before the wedding.
Feathers! Lot and lots of Feathers.
I heard once that if you do a king size quilt with feathers you will be a feather making expert. I'm not sure that if that is true.
But I quickly realized that I didn't know how to do feathers upside down
But I can now!
