About this time of the year I begin thinking about making quilts for the deck. Of course, warmth is not needed in the summer, but big blasts of color is. So I made chair backs and lots of pillows to toss on all the white furniture.
I have already made two different color schemes and I have tons of fun decorating the deck with them.
After looking through previous year's pics (to remember what colors I had), I decided that both sets are still in pristine condition, so I won't make a new set this year. That left me with no new project.
It looked like I might go two nights in a row without sewing anything. .. but I got a little fidgety.... I glanced over and saw a pattern I printed some time ago from Sewhooked.org.
Hmmm, it doesn't look like much, but I am curious to see it made up.
So I grabbed it, cut it out and picked up this bag of recent scraps (still sitting on the floor under the ironing board).
In about one hour, I had a cute chicken pot holder.
I even tried out a new stitch on my machine
to use instead of quilting to hold it in place. Then I used a second stitch to machine sew the binding on. I need more work on that, so I will probably make another one tonight to practice.
It was a quick fun project.
