The postman brought my new stash of batting, so I'm ready to go!
I decided to make pot-holders and kitchen towels out of this awesome kitchen fabric my great-grandma Nanny Burks left behind in her stash. The one on the right was a first attempt (now belongs to me...), the rest of them were made like the one on the left - much easier and looks better (at least close up...). Totally forgot to take a picture of the towels, but as I'm making many more for other relatives not present at lunch today who are sure to be jealous (!), I'm sure to have a picture in the near future : )
I was a great chance to practice some machine quilting! I feel a lot better about it and will probably machine quilt most of the quilts I have coming up since it should be faster. I did stippling on 1/2 and wavy lines on 1/2 - a total of 7 practice runs!
I've made a mess of nine-patch blocks which will soon "disappear" to make 2 baby quilts for my cousin's twins, Emory Elizabeth and Mary Catherine, who were born this week - premature and tiny, but doing awesome without oxygen! Their mom is still in the hospital fighting staph, so definitely prayers for her on this Mother's Day.
