When Karen gave me the bag of scraps, I was a bit overwhelmed. They were wonderful, mostly thin strips of fabric, but there were so many of them.
Jon asked if I wanted help when I dumped the bag out on the dining room table and started organizing them. It didn’t take as long as we thought it would. We just kept rolling up the strips of fabric and putting them in piles with like colors, or tried to anyway.
At one point Jon texted Sue Silverstein to ask if she would like some of them. I knew I could use the scraps but also had enough to share. And both Jon and I know by now that Sue would make good use of them.
As I rolled, I was thinking of the cat fabric that was on my work table in my studio. I found the perfect material to go with the cats, the last time I was in my studio. That would be the bulk of the potholder, but I still needed some smaller pieces to frame the cats with.
Now I had that fabric too.
The cat potholders came together quickly, the big flower fabric balanced with the smaller prints of the thin strips.
I hope to have these all done by the end of the week.
