Too Hot!

Spent a little time on the weekend making some potholders to sell at the show. I have a couple of other sets I want to make and then I'll move on to something else.

And yesterday I finished up making four blocks for a Christmas table topper. The ladies from the MB I frequent were holding a Christmas block swap with this pattern. I couldn't commit to being in the swap, too much on my plate, but I didn't want to feel left out either. I figured I could manage 4 blocks. I love this setting, it looks like a star.

Continuing to work on the binding for my sister's quilt. Not a lot of fun having a quilt draped over me with the current temps. Have you noticed that it is October and my Weather Pixie has been wearing a bikini? It was 95 degrees here yesterday, that is so insane! This is supposed to be my favorite time of the year. I wish the weather would change soon.

Great pot holders! Do you cook Thanksgiving dinner? The leaf ones will be perfect. Your block for the Christmas table topper is gorgeous. I love the green.

Just love the potholders. Do you use a special batting for the heat?
Your star block colorings are great together.

What a lovely block for the table topper/runner. The weather here has been crazy as well, such hot days, with cool mornings and evenings, but the days, oh my gosh. I've been having the a/c running almost non-stop.

I like the star block too - what size did that finish at? Or are you going to add lots of borders?

The table topper is really nice! I'll have to try that block and see what I come up with. I enjoy reading your blog!

Your Christmas table runner is going to be very nice. Love the star block with red.
