Green Saturday


Another day trying to use up my green scraps, this time I made two pot holders.Again I used the quilt as you go method with the strips set on the diagonal this time.
More green for the backing.  This is the same fabric as I used for the table runner.  I didn't have green for the binding on this one, so I used a dark red.
The binding on this one was some of the leftover fabric I used for the strips.
The backing of this one, was some of the green I had been gifted in the week.  You can see, I've also used some in the front.


This one is slightly larger than I would normally make, but I thought it was a useful size to use on the table.

It's getting more challenging as the scraps get used up, but I think I have the germs of an idea growing for the next project.  I think I will be sewing lots of half square triangles today.

Looking good! The red binding really sets it off. I'm looking forward to seeing where your new idea takes you!

Love these. If I could just master the binding, I would make some in a wink.

They are all so attractive; I think red and green go so well together. I should do something useful with my scraps, other than mess around with them and have a pile of UFOs. The Mug Rug was an exception to that though - thanks for your comments on it.
