Congratulations to Kelly from Jeliquilts for winning the AMH scraps and pieces.
I ordered two charm packs of Dear Mr. Claus by Cosmo Cricket with the idea of making a small Christmas quilt for our grandson. I especially liked the old fashioned Santa in this line. Guess what......no Mr. Claus in the charm packs. Once I got over my disappointment I decided the fabric could be better used to make a few gifts. Using half square triangles, I put together a few variations.
They are lined with Insul-Bright making them more versatile.
We have a mug rug......or
a pot holder......or
or a candle mat.
As we all know there has been horrific devastation on the East Coast because of Hurricane Sandy. My blogging friend Jennifer, from Knotted-Thread has issued a plea to quilters. She's asking for help making quilt blocks and for donations. Please see her flickr group set up with all the information you'll need. Quilters have a wonderful way of offering support whenever and wherever they're needed.
See you soon! xoxo
