potholders & more

Monday, June 28, 2010
tonight is our next meeting of the philadelphia modern quilt guild
we will be having a potholder swap at the meeting tonight... and each member that wants to participate is making 2 potholders and bringing them wrapped up so that it's a surprise what you end up with!

i've had a month to work on mine... but surprise surprise i was working on them yesterday!
they feel very dharma initiative ish to me...

i still need to finish the binding on the one


also i finally got around to posting our logo on our blog..


exciting news...
mark & jodie from quilt out loud contacted me and asked if they could film a segment about the guild!!
of course!!
candi agreed to be filmed with me and we had a blast 
thank you johanna for letting us film at cloth & bobbin!!

Your potholders are so cute and they look like you put a lot of effort into them. That is so exciting for you to be on Quilt Out Loud.

I'll look forward to your taping in the Fall. Love the potholders! I had productive weekend too. All the blocks for two quilts done, one Christmas, one a baby gift. Now to cut the borders, put the tops together and off to a machine quilter.

Whoa you're quick with the July blocks! June hasnt even ended yet lol Beautiful!

Btw at work the other day, this man comes in repeating to himself, "Quilts and more, quilt with the circles on the front"... I was like "Ooh we have that! My friend made that quilt!" hahaha!

LOVE THE LOST reference!!!! And I agree but that would just make me love them more. Wish I was in your area so i could snatch them up. Humm no Tidewater Modern Guild yet but maybe someday.

I love your Dharma potholders! I may steal the idea for Christmas gifts.

Jealous of your MQG. I want one in my town, but I'd have to start it myself I think and I don't have the time rightnow. Someday...

Patty said...

productive week, give a cheer!

haha to the Dharma Initiative. That cracked me up, and I lost track of Lost a couple of years ago. (You know how when you missed the season finale it seems like you can't watch the new season, and then it just keeps going like that...)

Anyhoo, that spider web block in the charcoal and Hope Valley is awesome. I did that block in selvages, but every time I see it in whatever fabric, it looks great!
