Slinging Hash

 The next border on my pot luck potholder quilt is complete. I've decided to call this one "Stash Hash". There are blocks and "units" from at least a dozen other quilts in this one. Now I know why I keep those "reject" blocks! 




I'm making progress on step 3 of the Quiltmania Mystery quilt, "Mathilde". Not sure where it's going (guess that is why they call it "mystery"!) or if I even like it yet, but I will carry on! I love watching the progress of others. I especially enjoy seeing other quilters add little changes. The only change I have made (so far) is to eliminate the birds from the 4 border pieces. Since I made a mistake in the orientation of the flowers, I thought it best to wait and see which direction they should be going in. Hope they don't fly away before I get them stitched down. 

Have a super sewing weekend!

Pot Luck Anyone?

 While we are all waiting for pot luck picnics in the summer sun, I decided to unearth my numerous orphan blocks and make "potholder potluck" number 3. I named my last one "Sourdough" because for some strange reason, when the quilt was finished, I ended up with more orphan blocks than I started with. 

I am using printed patchwork (cheater prints) on the back 

So far it measures 32" and if all goes according to plan, it will be 80" in the end. That should be the end of the orphans, but then...
