I'm a wife and mother of three and step-mom of two. I have a master's degree in international relations. I live in Alabama, but have always wanted to move out of the south. I love the West and New England, so I travel there as often as I can.
For our May meeting, my quilt quilt is having a pot holder swap. Everyone is supposed to bring a homemade pot holder, and we are going to have some sort of creative way to swap them, not sure what that is going to entail. I made mine out of an orphan block I had laying around. It has a layer of regular quilt batting and a layer or Insul-bright inside to make it heat proof.
One of my quilting friends found a cute little picture on pinterest that says that there are no mistakes in quilting - only pot holders. I think that is good idea!
