patchwork potholder (a quick tutorial) from Sotak Handmade


I really, really enjoy sewing up projects for our home so when I realized we needed new potholders I was more than happy to drop everything and get stitching.


I think it turned out quite lovely  :)


I started off with some of my screen printed scraps and a few pieces of Essex linen (my favorite combo), and randomly pieced them together until my patchwork measured about 7.5'' x 8.5''. This measurement wasn't really important as potholders could definitely be smaller or larger depending on one's preference.


I then quilted my patchwork piece to a layer of ...

Quilting: candy bucket from Fabric Engineer

I quilted a Halloween quilt recently and the fabric had quite a bit of candy in it.  So I made a candy bucket quilting motif to go with it.



There are three different candies, and they are combined with a meander.

There is a tootsie roll or smarties shaped candy:
There is a peppermint candy, with or without a swirl:

Finally, there is a lollipop.  Again with or without a swirl.  This was my least favorite of the three, because I had a hard time going back on top of the stick.
It's a bit hard to see on ...

Fabric Weaving

Before I get to todays scheduled blog post on Salty Creations, I wanted to take a moment to pray for all of those affected by hurricane Florence. I hope everyone stays safe, find shelter, and gets the items they need. My heart goes out to them. It is in times like these I wonder how I can make a difference… When I searched for hurricane Florence I found this on the PBS website. Google is matching donations made to the American Red Cross. That is amazing!!

A Scrappy Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt - Part 3 from Red Pepper Quilts

Scrappy Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt | © Red Pepper Quilts 2018

I am pretty pleased with myself for having finished my Scrappy Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilt. I have so loved working on this quilt, from sorting through my fabric scraps and stash, to cutting hexies, glue basting fabric pieces to papers, and stitching hexagon flowers, to finally basting and quilting this quilt. It was a journey that played out over many long evenings with needle and thread, and one that I would happily repeat. I have lots of photos to share so please do bear with me!
