Barbara's Little Quilts
I finished the baby quilt I made using my un-vented Foundation-Pieced Half Square Triangle Tutorial. I backed it with fleece, which also acts as batting, and I bound it with a nice yellow gingham. I'm becoming very partial to fleece backs on quilts.
Then, in a bit of serendipity, I ran across a bag of batting scraps I'd saved up, and I decided to makes some even smaller quilts (also known a pot holder).
I had this nice panel stashed. I think I'd originally planned to make aprons from this fabric.
But the rectangular shapes made for perfect potholders.
I also resuscitated some orphan blocks.
Pot holders are perfect little showcases for some special single blocks. Plus, I got to practice my machine quilting and binding techniques.
