Dogs and A Vintage Quilt Top = Potholders

 

eight of the twenty dog potholders I made using the linen towel and quilt top

I don’t remember who sent me the linen towel with the dogs on it.  I stashed it away waiting for the right time to use it.

The right time came on Friday.  I can’t say why it was the right time,  only that it was.  There’s so many ways to deal with these dog images, and it took me while to figure out how to work with them in a way that spoke to me.

So I searched my fabric, as I do, and when I came across the quilt pieces that I cut off of one of the quilt tops that I put together for Bishop Maginn, I knew I found what I was looking for.

Except for the first potholder I made, everyone of the 20 dog potholders is made with the fabric from this wonderful quilt top from the 1960’s

  1. Hi Maria! If you have a German shepherd dog coming in your dog potholders I would like to pre order if I may. It would make a wonderful Christmas gift for my neighbor. She has a green kitchen but of course I would never try to tell you what colors to use in your art. But if by chance that happens please let me know!! Thank you.

  2. Do you have a Beagle or Basset Hound potholder?
    Oh, what about a Corgi? My brother has a Corgi and that would be a wonderful Christmas gift for him. He loves to cook.

  3. I have one of those Marsha, I think (Now I can’t remember!) I’ll look through them and send you some pics. Thanks for asking….

  4. It is rare to find an Australian cattle dog fabric, but I would be interested in one of those to if you have one.
