My fabrics Giveaway is still going on! If you want to join, head ower HERE ^.^
I finished them today :) The set of 2 potholders for Potholder Pass 6. Red, red and more red. The theme was monotone. I made phoenix with raw edge applique technique (with the help of fusible web):
It looked like this after thread-painting. I didn't want the quilting to be visible on the back of the potholder, so I quilted after gluing the batting and before adding the fabric for the back. Just wanted to show you the effect of thread-painting which is not so visible on the red fabric :
I'm proud of the phoenix's head. Before quilting I draw only the major lines on the fabric. Most of the thread-painting was free hand improvising:
The buttons on the base of the upper potholder enable to hang both potholders together and thus create a whole picture:
Ready to send to my swap partner:
And another good news. I got my jelly roll which I won in Madamme's Samm Mug Rug contest!
The fabrics look really nice :) Do you have some idea (or a link to some pattern) for what I can use the jelly roll? I was thinking about quilt, but I think that would be too much for me (besides, with two cats which love to scratch, my quilt wouldn't survive much). Maybe some interesting jelly roll quilt blocks? Please help :P
