I put the last quilting stitches into my Burning Leaves potholder blocks last night and finished all the hand bindings (there are 36 blocks in all). It seems like I’ve been working on this forever, but in fact I started this at my retreat in June and fully intended it to be the “slow” pick up project that it turned out to be.
I made lots of other quilts this summer including 3 baby quilts, 2 wedding quilts and 4 veterans quilt tops. But this was my “go to” relaxing hand work project and I was almost sad this morning to not have it to pick up (I do need to stitch them all together but that will come later).
Thank heaven for my new Quilty 365 project. I am absolutely loving these little circles. I started on November 8 and have appliqued one circle each morning as I sip my coffee. So much fun. Thanks again Audrey (Quilty Folk) for giving me the nudge. It’s not too late to join in the fun!
I know what you are thinking. What is she going to do with the little circles?? I have to cut out the backs as sometimes feedsack fabrics are so lightweight they show through, so I end up with yet another little circle. Hmmm???? I will probably keep them for a giveaway next year of 365 little circles! Stay tuned.
