    Sulabug, I hope this is ok in this thread. Please let me know if it is not.

    Here are my latest. I have a co-worker with a birthday in July, so I made her a gift of my favorite things. Microwave bowl with some of my favorite small items in it. I think she will like it.

    Yes, it is perfectly okay to post your information here, as we all want to learn what is the right product to use. We will be anxiously awaiting to hear your response from Warm & Plush. Thank you for learning for us!!

    deedum.......Your Microwave Fabric Bowl turned out really nice. I love the way you made it such a beautiful gift to give for your co-workers birthday. If it's okay with you I just might have to steal your neat idea. Thank you so much for sharing with all of us here on the Quilting Board!!

    Sulabug, yes please do, I wanted to share the gift idea on this. Just think of the endless gift ideas. If a person is sick, put a can of soup, tissues etc in it. All kinds of ideas there. Glad you like it, I hope to find more time to make more.

    Thanks Sulabug. I want to make some of these for my Mom and would like to use a safe product but also economical. So far, The Warm Co. has not responded but I will let you know when I hear from them.

    This morning I wrote to the Pellon Co. about this product, Pellon® Nature's Touch® 100% Cotton Batting, 90" width BTY. It is currently on sale at Joann's for $7.49. It is ultra clean 100% cotton without scrim. That would be a great deal since shipping is $1.99 through today.

    What gorgeous projects of the month you have created & just shared with all of us!! I have to say that you have been one busy sewer lady!! I really like your idea of using an already created block for your microwave fabric bowl. I have lots of those blocks hanging around, so I think I will try the same thing. I want to make some for my son & his wife for their upcoming anniversary in July. This would be perfect!! Thank you so much for sharing.

    Made two more Fabric Bowl Miits..made the bowl part somewhat larger for a flatter type soup bowl. Sent them off to my sister along with her Linen napkins this afternoon.

    Ps used Warm & Tater Batting in these two.

    Judy........I really like these two fabric bowls that you have just made for your sister. I especially like that you are using the same fabric for them, but in different color's. How interesting. Your sister is one lucky girl to received not only these bowls, but the linen napkins that you just made & sent to her with the bowls. Very nice work & thank you for sharing with all of us!!

    I love fat quarter Monday, FQs are $2 each so I stock up especially with novelty prints.
    While I was sick for the past month, the inventory dropped to just 10 bowls in only three different fabrics. Rebuilding like crazy and the fat quarters will give a huge variety!

    i just finished mine...i don't like mine as well as the ones others have posted...but it'll work. the one in back and the one in front are the same fabrics, pic just shows both sides; and the one on the left is for my husband. he wanted the orange side out bec he likes it better. (i know they're reversible)...i didn't quilt mine as much as i could have. the next ones i make i may try to do that, but these are ok for a first go at it.

    thanks so much for this really great project! simple, easy, and i didn't have to buy anything to do it! i told my friend about it, she's a home ec teacher at a local junior high, and she's going to have her students make one too!

    peachs.......... I am impressed with your microwave fabric bowls, you have done a great job making yours!! What a nice start with your project for June.

    Here is the very first one I made. It was a kit I bought back at the Paducah show. I had finished it, then I realized two things. One the size is so small compared to the pattern here and two I don't think I used 100% cotton thread. Yikes, I love the material. So with my trusty seam ripper, I ripped all my quilting out and all the stitches while I was on a road trip. Came home and finished the bowl using 100 % cotton and here it is. It was more work yet I am glad I did it. Not buying a kit again, as the directions weren't good. I do love making these.

    Deedum..........Sorry that I am late in commenting on your lovely Microwave Fabric Bowl. I love the fabric that you chose & the colors are so fun to look at. I have to say that it is a winner in my book!! If you make more of them we hope that you will share them too!! Great Work.
