There were a lot of interesting pieces of fabric in the box that Larry sent me. They belonged to his mother and he chose pieces for me that he thought might make good potholders.
There are many including one with small elephants on it. But Eden Garden fabric felt very timely with all my gardens in bloom. I was also drawn to the Victorian imagery.
So I scooped up the leftover fabric on my worktable from the quilts I’d been making for Ellen and put it all in a pile on the floor. (I didn’t feel like cleaning it up, I wanted to get right to work) Then I circled my studio looking for the fabric that I would add to the printed garden illustrations to make potholders.
There are women in the garden, baskets, a beehive, a wishing well and horse and cart. I didn’t use up all the fabric, but I ran out of time. So these will have to do for now.
Tomorrow I’m planning on working on backing for Ellen’s fourth quilt and I’ll finish up the potholders next week and put them up for sale in my Etsy Shop then.
And Larry if you’re reading this and would like a potholder made from your mother’s fabric, just let me know. It would be my pleasure to give you one.
