Or maybe a donut? I love 'em both and now I can have my fill whenever I want without worrying about those pesky ole calories!!
I need new pot holders....badly. What you are looking at are the pads I won in last night's Pot Holder Swap at the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild. Aren't they a great matched set? Cute as can be. Guess what. They were made by two different quilters! Who'da thunk it that I would draw the numbers for both! It was just meant to be, I think.
Here's a view from the back. Cute as the front and just as calorie free. I can just put on the tea pot and plunk my cup down on a different donut every morning to get my sugary fix, don't you think?
The pot holders were made by Barbara and Mary, both friends of mine. They were sitting together at the meeting and had each made pads from similar fabric without knowing it. It is so much fun when things like that work out so great. My mother-in-law always loved coincidences (she called them God-incidents) and always had one to tell me about. If she were still living, I'd enjoy sharing this one with her. And this one..................................
These are the hot pads that I made and brought to swap. I had a wonderful time picking through my selvage collection to make them. I don't know if you can tell from the photo, but I pleated a strip of selvage in the center of the hot pad on the right....kinda fun!
Guess who won one of them?
Barbara! The maker of the cute "flip flop" pot holder. We just exchanged our miniature quilts.
Another God- incident. I don't know if God really cares who get what quilted hot pad, but I bet He got a kick out of it too!
Here's the back side of my pads. I've had the spoon and fork fabric for awhile and was saving it for just the right project. Bingo!
The pear and apple fabric is by Alexander Henry and has been around for awhile but I still just love it.
I enjoyed making this pads so much that I decided to make an extra set as a gift to my new friend, Sarah, who graciously quilted two of the Rwanda quilts. I hope she likes them.
I'm suddenly craving chocolate chip cookies....or maybe a trip to Dunkin' Donuts! Gotta go!
