Potholders finished

I finished the 2 potholders for the potholder swap I joined. I sent them to Erica in North Dakota yesterday. I will wait a couple of days before I post a picture of them so I can make sure she gets them first and sees them. I wouldn't want her to see them here first by chance she happens to browse to this blog. :o)

It wasn't hard to make the pothholders once I had a pattern in mind. That was the hardest part. Picking the pattern. We were given the recipients color choice and Erica's was Navy Blue and Tan. I wanted to do a circular one and a coordinating square one. I thought they turned out pretty good and I really enjoyed a nice, quick project since I mostly make queen size quilts.

I posted a link to the sidebar for the potholder swap in case you want to join the next one in a couple of months.

I will add pictures next week of the potholder.

Have a great day!

Strings Attached Challenge

I also have joined a strings attached challenge coordinated by Loft Creations (see link on sidebar). I now have to make a quilt using my scrap strings. I am looking forward to getting rid of some of my huge pile of scrap material. This should be really fun and quite a challenge. I will post pictures once I have decided what I am going to do and start the project.

New adventure

I just joined a potholder swap. I am really looking forward to it. I have to make 2 either identical or cordinating 7-8 inch potholders. My swap partner likes the colors tan and blue. I said Orange since that was the first color that popped into my head for this swap. I like all colors so I choose something different. My swap partner is from North Dakota and I am from Washington so this will be interesting.

I am still trying to decide what pattern to do for the potholders. I am also trying to figure out how to link that blog to mine. I will have to look into that tomorrow as it is time to go to bed. Good night.
