    A little bit of fun..

    In my mini group (I was the hostess) we are doing a little off key bit of fun. We blindly drew a 10 x 10 piece of fabric that each of us brought. Our assignment is to make a pot holder from part or all of it. Then next month we will blindly draw again.

    Here's mine. The fabric that I drew was the fabric in the tea pot.

    I think she means she drew the fabric without looking to see what was there, rather than drawing the teapot with her eyes closed. ???

    Thanks everyone.
    Yup, LOL.
    We put them in a paper bag and passed it around. I won't be keeping it, someone else will draw it. We can't keep the one we made.

    Oh dear what a great potholder! I love the amount quilting you used on it too. I hate those ones that fall apart in the wash the fist time cleaning them.

    I love the use of the fabric for the teapot! That is great. You did a marvelous job and it look like a lot of fun too. Bridget says it's a beauty and she loves it very much.
