Last week, my hubby asked me to make his mom microwaveable bowls for her birthday. Her birthday is today, so now I can show you!
The bowls are made with 8 and 10 inch squares of fabric and batting. Remnants are perfect! And I always have cotton batting scraps, too. It’s fun to pick out fabrics that look good inside or out.
Here’s the instruction sheet that my hubby sent with it. He’s so creative!
Linda’s Microwaveable Bowl Instructions
If you’re not sure how to use them, click on the instructions!
If you’re not sure how to make them, here’s a link to the tutorial on my Pinterest board. I don’t follow the instructions exactly, I never do! But, the results are the same. Cotton fabric and batting is important.
Thanks and Happy Birthday, Mom!
Linda has created a table topper of her own design with applique borders and a broderie perse basket of flowers in the center and 3 corners.
The batting is Quilter’s Dream 100% cotton select, perfect for table toppers because it drapes well and is very flat. The thread is 2 colors of Superior OMNI.
Every part has a different element, so enjoy the pictures!
Linda’s very creative with her quilt backs!
Thanks for looking and have a Happy Mother’s Day weekend!
I’m taking the long weekend with our daughter visiting to sneak in this “loose end” and quilt it. I’ll add my table runner to the end and maybe a few other small projects like a potholder or orphan blocks. After looking at it for two days, I’ve decided to quilt it with a very small meander and use 100% cotton batting. After it’s finished, I’ll wash and dry it to purposely shrink it to give it the wrinkled antique look.
Have a great weekend and Happy Easter!
I’ve been busy quilting customer quilts and not posting them! So here’s Marty’s Big Camping quilt. It’s much bigger than my hanging space! Even though it’s a big one, I was able to turn the quilt for stitching the borders, but just barely. The borders have separate designs and the center is quilted with two different motifs to change the texture of the quilt along the camping blocks.
The batting is Quilter’s Dream Blend and the thread is Superior Threads So Fine 50. I used a color that matched so well that I couldn’t see it sometimes!
And the back is always fun to look at! For the narrow green border I switched to a dark green thread in the needle and bobbin.
Marty did another big quilt which I will feature in the next post!
Thanks for looking and just keep stitchin’ !
I’ve been wrangling some big quilts lately and I still have a few more to go! Here’s a fairly large quilt by Connie. It’s bigger than my hanging space!
We decided to quilt it with a overall freehand shell meander, maybe you would call it peacock feathers or 1, 2, 3. Do you have a name for this quilting design?
The thread is Superior OMNI and the batting is Quilter’s Dream 100% cotton select.
Bonus! The back is pieced! The thread matches so well, it’s hard to see but it would make a nice reversible quilt.
Our quilt guild had a trunk show this week and the presenters pieced most of their backs from the leftover project fabrics. Now, that’s one way not to have lots of fabric scraps! What do you prefer?
