This week I wanted to make someone
some improv coasters for their dining room table.
Bright colors were requested, so I pulled my
scrap bins out and started sewing.
The coasters are six inches square (15 cm)
and hand quilted using Sulky thread.
|Fun little bursts of color!|
I thought that pot holders/fabric trivets
would be a great addition
to their kitchen as well.
I machine quilted these with an Insul-Bright
mylar layer in the middle
for heat protection.
I also thought some whimsical log cabin placemats
would be nice.
So far two are done,
with cotton batting,
and hand quilted with large stitches using white thread.
On my knitting needles,
I've been knitting socks
using a pattern that I found on Ravelry.
It's David's Toe-Up Sock Cookbook,
which requires a bit of measuring and math,
but ends up with a perfectly fitted sock.
Thanks, David, for sharing this pattern.
The wool is hand dyed in turquoise, sky blue,
chartreuse, spring green,
sunny yellow with a bit of white thrown in.
Here's hoping that you have time for fabric/fiber,
