A heart potholder and a stash quilt.

Happy Friday, hope everyone enjoyed Valentines Day this week !

I had a couple of extra blocks that did not make the cut for my Valentines table runner I showed you last so I made them into a potholder:

I also noticed that I hadn’t posted pictures of this scrap quilt I made almost a year ago…

The pictures are really bad and perhaps that’s why I didn’t post them. In person this quilt is really nice – it has a kinda quirky bohemian vibe and I’m so happy with how it turned out. It is one of a small handful of quilts that I have made that truly feel like “me”. The “pattern” is Allison Harris’s Jelly Strip Stash Buster Quilt¬†¬†. The fabric is from stash yardage and jelly roll strips left over from another one of Allison’s patterns I made – “Breezy” and as I looked for that quilt to link to I realized that I may not have posted that one either – oh well.

Here’s another blurry picture of the backing. I used an ancient Mary Englebreit print and a pink pindot for the binding – you can also see some of Amanda Jean’s fabric in there. That white variegated stitch fabric is so great – goes with everything. I wish I had bought yards and yards of it in every colour, hahaha, says the girl trying to sew down her stash !

Speaking of Amanda – I am linking up with Finish it up Friday.

Lovely

Hello, thanks for stopping by !

A few weeks ago I got it into my head that a Valentine table runner was in order. There are so many good tutorials and patterns out there it was hard to choose ! This is Sher Falls pattern “Lovely”. The table runner measures 19.5″ x 47.5″.

These heart blocks with the inside/outside juxtaposition really caught my eye and those tiny little hearts for the background fabric was a no brainer !

I’m not too crazy about these inside pictures but it’s been so cold here lately I just wasn’t gonna do them outside. Oh well. I’ll leave you with some selvage edge wisdom from Bonnie and Camille – good words to live by:
