A rather listless attempt at cleaning up my cutting table and almost any other horizontal surface in my sewing room kept leading me to little piles of scraps that hadn't made it to the scrap bins yet. I was tempted to sort them by colour and put them away, I really was, but there were a few pieces that I picked up that I really liked and knew that this was the very last that I had of them, so I decided to make something with them instead.
My pot holders get a good workout and a couple of mine were starting to look more than a little ratty, so scrappy potholders it would be.
I did quilt-as-you-go piecing with randomly spaced rows of quilting, stitching directly onto a batting. To join the front and back I just added a few more rows of stitching, so from the back the rows are not as dense as they are on the front. Don't you just love that Martha Negley pink/coral daisy print? I think it's my very last little bit of it.
A little pick-me-up-pink for the binding...
and WA-LA! A set of happy little potholders.
One is backed in mauve...
and the second in a green (it seemed in keeping with all the scrappiness that the backs be pseudo scrappy too).
And, they have already been pressed into action in the kitchen, so I am enjoying my little scraps every day....M
