vote for me! :)

I have been considering making potholders after seeing some lovely tutorials (here and here). I was procrastinating as I don’t really know what colors I want in my kitchen. But my local quilt shop was having a contest so I went for it. I made them patchwork and that added a while and I love the bias tape I picked but I cut it pretty narrow trying to be conservative with my fabric and that was a mistake! I ended up having to attach it by hand because I couldn’t get it straight through all the layers. ( top, batting, insulating layer, bottom fabric) ARG! It was so not worth “conserving fabric”.
Oh well. So I finished two in time to enter them in the contest (to win a tote full of quilting fun worth $75)! There are 10 other entrants and I am #10 so if you go by Among Friends quilt shop on Taylorsville Rd. (next to Kingpin bowling) make sure and vote for me! ☺ I like how they turned out but I was so over them because they took a lot more work than I thought. My mom would really like them so they might get sent to her…

So whenever I come to L'ville, you have to take me to this quilt store. Looks great. I still haven't found a good one here. I really haven't had too much extra time with trying to get the yard finsihed. But I do see the end of the tunnel on that one, I think. I wish I could vote on line for oyu. MAybe you should ask if that is possible. I could get the masses to vote for you.
