Fancy Pot Holder

Well this started out meaning to be a large pot holder but I think it's too pretty to be used so I added loops in case it gets hung on a wall instead!! But it could be used quite happily as a pot holder as it has that special heat insulating batting in-between!

I'm still obsessed with the little birdies from Erin @ Why Not Sew.  But inspiration also came from Cluck Cluck Sew's leaf pillow.

I hope the new owner loves it!

I've used  Cath Kidston Fabrics as I know the recipient of this gift loves them!

The trees were just made by free hand sewing - no pre drawn lines.  Love the way they turned out.

I think my free motion quilting is improving a little bit too!

This is the back.

Thanks for taking a look.  I'm linking up to Quilt Story's Fabric Tuesday.

Finished Peak Hour Quilt!!

Yay finished the quilt this morning. LOVE this fabric line.

I think I almost prefer the back to the front!! Wishing I'd put the name on the back! Love the binding.

Hope I've spelt it right!!

And here it is with the matching taggie blanket!

Glad it's finished in time for my visit!

It's that quilt again!! Really hoping to finish it this week!! As I'm seeing the new owner of it on Monday!!

I decided to quilt straight lines either side of the seams. It seemed to fit better than free motion given that it was a strip quilt. Plus it's easier!!

Not sure if I blogged that I appliqu├ęd the little baby's name on it or not. But you can just see it in one of the pictures I think.

Thanks for stopping by! Linking up to:

Still Busy With the Quilt but .....

...Made this cute little taggie blanket to go along with it!

It used up all those little bits from the Jelly roll. And on the back has some white minky. Lovely and soft. I added a thin piece of batting inside too.
