Another day- another blog post about finished crafties I no longer have to keep secret.
For Christmas, my mom requested pot holders. I went a little fruity with it.
All the potholders are variations of this tutorial- Patchwork Pineapple Mini Quilt. Just like Anna's Strawberry Pillow. But made at half the size. A quilt full of strawberries or pineapples is still on my to-do list.
My dad got a quilt for Christmas this year. Hopefully its just the right size for falling asleep under on the couch while watching TV.
It was inspired by these quilts I made to donate to the Children's Hospital. My dad seemed to really like them, so I made him a wacky, bright star quilt of his own.
I'm undecided as to whether the octopus and fish block or the bear block is my favorite. Probably the octopus. No the bear. No the octopus. While I was making it, I referred to it as the Hungry Octopus quilt (all those fish- just out of reach). I haven't really come up with anything else, so that's it's official name, I guess.
