I'm getting some things moving finally. Last week I finished my Prouty quilt and this weekend I got the first pair of potholders finished. These were from a pair of Chefwear pants my daughter had. I got the idea last year to re-purpose some worn chef's pants into potholders so my brother could raffle them off for his cancer fund raiser. Now I have started a tradition and will do more pairs this year.
love the fabric!
Now, Chefwear is known for cool prints on their pants, in case you've never seen them. I have some white fabric re-purposed from chef's coats that a friend gave me. I will put colorful quilting and borders on them to jazz them up. The drawstring from the waist is what I use for the hanging loop. Hardly any waste after disassembling them. Love that!
I also got started on quilting my Sunkissed Squares quilt finally! I had forgotten how lovely it is. I love this quilt from every angle.
I am doing my first try at quilting with pearl cotton. It's a little different from hand quilting with betweens and quilting thread, but I think I am getting the hang of it. So far it looks lovely. I will shre the finished product, hopefully soon. Have a productive week everyone.
