I finished up a few more kitchen items this week and tried out a new quilting method too! Here's a simple patchwork table runner made with stash scraps.
I also made a couple of pot holders using the quilt as you go method.
Insul-brite, and used my walking foot to quilt lines, about the width of my foot (the walking foot, not my foot), across the scrap. Then I added another piece next to it, right sides together, sewed down with a 1/4 inch seem, flipped the top piece over, then quilted that piece down. You just keep going, adding pieces, log cabin style, until you reach the ends of your insulation piece. Then you square it up to the desired size. For a tutorial you can go here (she made a whole quilt using this method) or here to check out tote bags and other projects. It's really fun, and I'm loving this method for making pot holders.
The drink is called "Skip and go Naked", and it's a party in a blender. All you need is frozen pink lemonade (I know, so girly and pink right?), beer, vodka, and ice. Add some sun, music and a pool and you will be one happy camper. I think the book might be out of print, but you can still find it used on Amazon.
I'll be linking up to Tuesday at the Summer Table. Thanks for hosting Debbie!
