Honey Pot Bee and potholders

Hi dear friends!

happy blocks

I had to take out happy blocks because the ‘potholder attitude’ started to take over. I wanted to make several potholders but nothing worked well. And what was wrong … it was the potholder attitude: it’s just a potholder which is going to get dirty and thrown away. I should be able to think that hey! it’s only fabric! Only?! Who says only?! Every scrap is unique and won’t come back ever again! (remember I don’t have acces to quilt shops here).

It was time to pick some cute scraps and make the Wild Card block for Molli Sparkles’ “The Honey Pot Bee”! Trees are made with the tutorial by ‘Diary of a Quilter’.

So fun to make these trees that as a tree lover, ther will surely bee many more! In fact first I made red/beige trees having potholders in my mind.


Then I made few houses.

Next try was to make flower pot. I draw the templates from Helen Philipp’s book: ‘Modern Vintage Gifts’. Read Helen’s lovely Christmas post!

I loke the flower but not the colours. I was thinking to make scrappy flower with happy colours – how I ended up with this?! Heart is also from Helen’s book.


This surely shows me what my main goal for the year 2017 should be: to find myself and my happy colours again!

Like these!


And these! Time to continue Winding Ways with Kaffe Fassett; should be enough happy colours!

And after that I shall cnontinue these Grand Canal diamonds!

I have a feeling that year 2017 will be happier!
