Katie Rocks!

 I received my Potholders from the Potholder Pass that Amy  put together.  My secret swap buddy was Katie.  I said that I liked retro 30's prints  and specified artist's choice for colors and design as I really like the element of surprise.  I'm so glad that  I did. They really are beautiful and honestly I can't bring myself to use them as potholders and even worse have something spilled on them *gasp*.  I have them hanging on my inspiration board instead.  

Katie generously sent along a few fat quarters and extra goodies that she used in making these beauties. They immediatly got tucked into my 30's fabric stash to be admired and touched while dreaming of one day making a quilt for myself.  I plan on using much of it to repair and replace damaged fabric from some family quilts that were handed down. 

Katie, thank you again for the lovelies. I look forward to Round 2 of the Potholder pass and seeing your creations!

I got mine finished last night and am sending them out this afternoon before the next storm.  I really had to step outside my comfort zone and did some paper piecing and after many mistakes and do - overs I  am very happy with the finished potholders.   I sure hope my secret swap buddy likes them and the goodies I sent along , and as soon as they are received I'll post some pictures.   Today I'm off to get some supplies to finish the backs of two quilts and a toothbrush rug and get them listed in my newly created Etsy store!

Make sure you check out  Katie and Amy's blogs as they are both extremely talented women. 

Take care,


  1. So glad that you liked them. Unfortunately I have decided not to sign up for round 2. I have several quilts, not really WIPs but UFOs, that need my attention. I will however be watching to see all that creativity bubble over into function. Go ahead and use them!!!

  2. I would have a hard time using them too! KT did a beautiful job. You are a lucky girl! I am sorry that KT won't be joining us this time. We will have to stalk her blog to see those UFOs finished up.


I'd love to hear from you.
