Springy Scrap Project

scrap circlesWhile packing up my fabric I found these colorful circles that were left over from a special quilt.  Looking back they have been unused for the last two years.

Those scrap circles were calling out to be used in a springy project.  After finding this circle white on white fabric, I decided to whip up some potholders with a different look.

With all of my sewing recently I haven’t played around much with applique.  This was the perfect project to get some practice as my next quilt will have lots!  I chose a thread that would pop on the colors.  Have you been out shopping recently to see all of the neon colors coming back?  Flashback to the 80’s and 90’s.

I prefer more of a raw edge applique look, plus shows the thread color very easily.  The color selection coordinates really well with the backing fabric.

Here is the completed set of potholders.  As the weather gets warmer and the flowers start to creep up from the ground, I am getting excited for spring.

More baby quilts – June Challenge

This quilt has been a work in progress for some time.  With the Indy Modern Quilt Guild’s June finish challenge, I thought this would be perfect.  The top and back were done a bit ago, but the back wasn’t big enough.  So I cut it in half and added the white stripe, nice touch. I am loving how the close quilting turned out.

The finished turned into a quilt for a friend’s baby shower.
