We were given a challenge in the Modern Quilt Guild to use the scraps provided by another member to create something for their kitchen. Here are some of the pretty fabrics included in the packet that I randomly chose.
Vicki wanted red and a little bit of aqua.
Spying a nice set of white bar towels at Target, I decided they would make a great jumping off point for my swap project. I found a tutorial on Sew 4 Home and tweaked it to work with the fabrics I was given.
Included in the packet were several selvages. Adding some Sherbet Pip squares that I had on hand from another project, I soon created a little pot holder to match the towels.
Oh, it is so hard to part with this set of new kitchen linens!
I do love aqua and red together so much!
Vicki,have fun using your pretty towels as you cook up something delish this summer!
Mary chose my baggie of scraps. I'd also included red and aqua with some lime green thrown in too. Look what she made for me! There was even a cup to match in my gift bag!
The cute mug rug is reversible so I can have a new look every time I use it.
I treated myself to some Starbucks this morning, as you can see. I must have sounded really excited to be there in the drive thru, because when I picked up my drink at the window, the name on it was "for our happiest customer!"
It also may have had something to do with the fact that i had two beautiful redheaded little girls in the backseat, singing "The wheels on the bus...."
Have a super day!
