These potholders were a simple project made from leftover triangles from another project. Rather than waste them, I pieced them into these potholders and quilted them with a feathered wreath design and bound them with a green Hoffman print. They have a Christmas feel to them and will make a nice hostess gift at holiday time.
This set of placemats was created from some scraps I wanted to use up. I fused one layer of batik over another, satin stitched the edges and arranged into a pleasing combination of four placemats. The backing is a coordinating blue/green print I pulled from my sash. Serendipitous! The quilting is a fern texture design by Ann Bright. They were donated to a 2015 Christmas Draw.
