So I realize it has been a while since I last posted. I have been busy with wedding season, work, and gearing up for my vacation to Australia. Here are just a couple of things that I put together to use up excess of one line that I am particularly fond of. Lots of blue, green and brown in my stash of cotton fabrics.

Here are a few pothlders I made using special batting that is made to withstand extreme heat. I went ahead and quilted it along the seam lines on the denim side using coordinating brown thread. The set is priced at $15.

Another project I worked on was a new tablerunner design using similar fabrics to the potholders above. It measures approximately 27 inches long and 21.5 inches wide. I pieced together two panels of different denims and then used one color of denim around all the edges. On the back side I used coordinating cotton fabric and then denim near the edges. It was bound with an all over print of brown, blue, and green dots. I quilted it by stiching a random running stitch in denim blue all over the tablerunner. With this table runner you get two wonderful tablerunners for the price of one! It is priced at $40.

Even though I know it is passing quickly, I hope you are enjoying your summer as much as I am enjoying mine!
