    Feeling Like Fall

    I made these Fall potholders to put in a gift basket for a conference in October. The front of the potholder is on the left, and the reverse side is on the right. I am just trying FMQ, so I tried it on these. Made the pillow for my cousin who spotted the pattern at a quilt shop earlier this summer. I'll surprise her with it for Fall.

    Your potholders and pillow are great! Autums is just around the corner, isn't it.

    Love both items. Thanks for sharing.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Those are so pretty. Fall is my favorite season.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Nice work!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.

    Your potholders are lovely. I love the way you put the loops in the binding. What a great idea.

    Beautiful work on both. The pot holders are a great idea for a gift basket.

    Love the potholders, especially the one with the writing and striped binding.

    Great pot holders ... I looked VERY closely at the binding because I can't tell which is the front and which is the back (ie the machine stitched part vs the hand stitched part). Your binding is AWESOME!

    Can I send you all my binding??
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    The potholder is so cute. You did a great job on your FMQ. I love the pillow too.
