little quilts

little, little quilts.
so simple.
so fun.
I love the olives on the back!
These are little gifts for friends.
I love giving these little quilts away!
(i mean potholders)...


red and yellow!
the same and yet not QUITE the same.
Scraps aren't always
in the exact amount you need. :)



The backs of these potholders
were made from a piece left over from
a red and white quilt that I loved.
Fabric scraps almost always brings back
MEMORIES.


Here's what I decided to do with those poor
little blocks I mentioned on Wednesday.
At least THREE of them get to see the
light of day now!
And......This table runner was so-o-o easy....
that the other blocks may be able
to get out of the drawer soon also!




Here it is welcoming the family home!






The backing...
Interesting fabric......
But not sure I want to look at it
ALL the time. :)

  6. Pretty potholders! And the table runner is very nice. Good way to use some of the blocks. The other one is nice too, that has the orange/purple back. Even if the orange block ended up on the end.
