2017-23 Quilt-As-You-Go Potholders

It seems that every year I make up a quick pair of Quilt As You Go Potholders specifically for a entry for this class at the Wellesley Fair.  They usually take me about an hour to make and then they are a good hostess gift to have on hand.   These pot holders were made from a little set of coordinated scraps I had in one of my many little baggies of leftover scraps.
So I was happy with the result – one more fair entry and one less baggie!

2017-32 Pinwheel Runner

This lovely little Table Runner was simple and fun to make.  It always is pleasant to work with fabrics that speak to you!  The backing and biding are a dark olive green.  It was quilted with a tan thread in a sunflower design that picks up the background fabrics in the pinwheel blocks.  This is one of my first entries prepared for 2018 fall fairs.

2017-31 Radiating Star Throw

This throw sized quilt is done in colours that I love and feel quite content to have in my home environment.  It feels like a subdued Christmas quilt – one that I can use all year long.

The centre part was in my stash for a long time before I became determined to finish it.  I added the borders during a quilt retreat in October, then quilted it in November.  I hand stitched the binding beside the fireplace during a cold winter weekend at the cottage.  Now, another finished project!  Hooray!
