    Hi! I was thinking about make some type of quilted item for several co-workers for Christmas. Do any of you have any ideas and patterns to share? Thanks

    Be sure to use all cotton batting in those bowls. I just had a potato bag catch on fire. I bet the maker used Warm and Natural.

    Have you done mug rugs?

    This year I made baked potato bags for all my Clerks in my Dept. I already have them all done. Of course, I used the Warm Tator batting, 100% cottom material and 100% cotton thread. I make something for them every year. Twice I have made some kind of Tote Bag and I made Casserole Carriers one year. Next year I am making Terry Atkinson Zippy Strippy bags. I'm making them for my neices this year and already collecting fabrics to make them for my Clerks next year.

    Maybe a set of potholders, or a table topper, or a tote, or placemats, depending on how much trouble you want to go to.
