POTHOLDERS !!!!

For 25 years, I have been getting together with a group of friends for coffee every Wednesday morning. When it is some one's birthday we have breakfast and give small gifts. This year I decided to make quilted potholders for everyone. These two are the last of the bunch, and are for my friend, Marsha. They adore their Scotties, so I had to make one with "Sam" on it.

Marsha has the greenest thumb I know with a beautiful garden; consequently a rose was in order.

These paper-pieced patterns are by Irene Berry, an editor at Quilter's Newsletter Magazine. In every issue, she has a new 3" pattern; and I'm always able to find something from my old issues that is appropriate for my recipient. Check out Quilter's Newsletter here.


Have a glorious weekend!!!

What sweet potholders!

I was given an award that I would love to pass on to you! On my blog I gave to all who read as I just can't give it to just 10 of my blogging buddies. But if I did ever follow rules you would be one that I list so would you come by and pick it up?

Looking forward to THurs!
