I think I made 12 house pot holders all together. These all have special homes to be mailed to after Christmas. Your comments convinced me that I'm okay to send belated Christmas gifts out still. Thanks for that. I've taken some pictures while making them so I'll post a tutorial after Christmas since several of you asked. I used the same teapot fabric to finish up some scrappy potholders. I ran out of the insulated batting after making these so I suppose that means I am finished making pot holders for the year, too. Using scraps makes me happy. I got the heat resistant batting online. I wonder if they have some at Joann's?
Chen, from our Christmas Cottage exchange sent pictures of her finished!!!! quilt to me. It is beautiful and fabulous! I love it. I can't tell you how satisfying it is to see these blocks set in a quilt that will be a memory for a long time. Chen did a wonderful job.
Now look at Chen's label! What a great way to remember who made each block. Very clever Chen, I think I'll copy your idea. I've made labels like that before- printed from my computer. Thanks so much for sharing that with us Chen. I'd love to post more finished cottage quilts as they get done - so send on the pictures.
The scurrying continues at my house and your house, too, I'm sure. I hope the weather doesn't stop your plans. We had at least a foot of snow.
