Potholder quilt progression.....

This past Wednesday was our quilt evening for May. I have been adding more blocks to our potholder quilt for this year's theme.

I added a fourth saying to the tablerunner...Measure twice, cut once. I stitched a spool of thread with a tape measure holder and tape measure. I have an antique one in my sewing antiques (which you can see in the collage photos) so thought it would be fun to add one to my quilt.

I also added another miniature patchwork block inside one hexagon. It is the Anvil to show my love of ironwork. I have often dreamed of taking a blacksmith course.


I am going to add blocks to the sides now as I think the runner is good at this length for my quilt studio table. You never know...I might make it longer later in the year but for now am going to concentrate on this length. Now to decide on my designs for the 7 hexie blocks.

I am linking to Suzanne's Lets Get Stitched.
