Blocks of the Month and a Mother’s Day gift

I’ve not yet sewn together the previous two Blocks of the Month, but I have cut and laid out another one.

I think April is my favorite so far:

And just in time for Mother’s Day, I’ve finished up two potholders. Not a terribly interesting gift, but at least they’re useful, and I know she likes the fabrics included.

The pattern is Half-Square Triangle Pot Holders from In Color Order. It was very clear and easy to follow, though I added loops, which might look a little funny. And of course I was brilliant and pinned everything together and THEN cut it all square, instead of quilting it first. It ended up not being a huge deal, but I’m planning on not doing that again.

On other fronts, I’ve completed two of my three courses for this semester, but the third is going to be a lot of work, so I may be just as quiet next week as I was this one — apologies in advance.

I sew and bead to fundraise for charity. I have two spinning wheels and three sewing machines, and more knitting needles than I probably really need.
