Spring Potholders

I love spring! I try to keep my windows open for as long as possible and look past the all of dust it creates because I get to enjoy it for approximately one week.  The desert likes to mess with my head and pretend it's nice weather here and then instantly turn itself into necessary air conditioning time.

In the meantime... I wanted some new potholders.  Our friends were visiting, so one morning before we headed out for the day I decided it would take my friend and I a 'couple hours' to make some pot holders.   All afternoon later... and some really rushed binding (not so proud of that, but I really wanted to be finished)... I present you the springiest of potholders ever!

I used my left over HST's from the pillows I made the other week and some of my favorite hummingbirds and came up with these.  I love the way the bee's and honeycombs look on the binding.

This is Kona Coal and Azure again.

My friend dug through my stash and came up with these fabrics for hers.  They're so bright and PINK!

I'm really loving this wavy quilting.. and I think it was the perfect choice of these.

  1. We had the a/c on for a bit today, after using the furnace over the weekend! I guess spring was over the lunch hour...

    Lovely potholders! What a fun way to spend the day with a friend!
