A Whole Day of Studio, Almost!

 After  finishing the pressing and trimming of the Myster QAL blocks,
I cut the borders and attached them on this lap quilt.
 Since I was on a roll, I decided to place those blocks I had removed,
and incorporated them into the backing.
 I whipped off these pj's for the Fernandina grands.
 With the few remaining moments before I had to head to the kitchen for some baking of pies,
I made this pot holder I had read about on Joy's blog.
I had seen these forever and wondered why I never made one!
And one was all I could made because I only had a scrap of the insulate fabric.
 See, your fingers and thumb go inside the back.
If I like using it, I will make some more!
And I closed out the day yesterday with a bit of new dishcloth knitting.
Another variation on the basketweave texture.

Today, all I have to do is bake an apple pie .
Easy preparation for the pleasures of family time tomorrow!


  1. You've been busy!! I am hoping on this long holiday weekend I can clear a path to the machine and get some sewing done. I've got a big batt calling my name.

  2. Those jammie pants are cute!
    I'm hoping to quilt Pinkerville this weekend, I've got a buyer interested in it.

  3. It's fun to use leftover blocks on the back of a quilt. I've done that a few times, too. A pumpkin pie will be in the oven this afternoon.

  4. You sure got lots done and I'm sure your grandkids will love the pj pants. I've never seen that kind of potholder before. You'll have to let us know how you like it.

  5. I love when quilt backs have a little piecing; not sure why I like it so much, but I do! The fabrics for the pjs are beautiful. That pot holder looks very cool! ... and pretty colors in the dishcloth.

I measured out my 120" for the warp for my 24" Knitter's Loom by Ashford and began threading!  Of course, there were a few set...
