This is what most of our summer has looked like.  Pretty dreary and very little heat.  Oh well, maybe next month.  Remember this quilt?

The fabric line is called "Fresh Flowers".  I did this quilt out of a jellyroll.  We also got in a panel that went with the line.  At the time, I didn't do anything with it.

Hmmmmm, what to do, what to do.  Well, how about some fun pot holders?

I fused some steam=a=seam to the back of the flower then cut it out.  I traced around a plate, about 9", onto a bright fabric, then fused the flower down.  I top-stitched the flower with matching thread.   The inside has insul-bright and one layer of cotton batting.
I practiced some different quilting designs to fill in the area.

I did tiny pebbles in this one because they're fun.  I didn't start out to make them this small, but I was so tense!

The binding is black with all those bright flowers on it.  Pure Fun.

Oh, and does anyone know what this is?  Is it garlic, or a type of onion? It comes up everywhere!
