Last week we made arrangements to have our entire townhouse interior painted, all at once, upstairs and down. When the contractor came to assess the job his only negative comment was about the difficulty the sewing room presented for his crew. As in too much stuff to move and not enough space to move it to.
With that news we decided to move the sewing room to the basement for the next few months. Of course that meant cleaning out the basement. The good, the bad and the ugly.
In the process of dragging a gazzilion pounds of sewing stuff down 2 flights of stairs I unearthed yet more UFO's. This is one of them.
I really didn't like making these blocks. I started the quilt several years ago and stopped when I finished butchering the first 6 blocks. I couldn't get the hang of how to match up the odd points.
Now that I have my sewing machine up and running again in it's not so cheery new spot in the basement I thought I would re purpose a couple of the blocks and came up with these. Ta Da...............

I backed the potholder/hot mats with a navy blue towel. They are on their way to my friends in Fl. They should make it there before the weekend.
The project was quick and fun. I will probably make the remaining blocks into potholders too. I will need to decide on doing that before I start anything new because
Navy Blue Terry cloth makes one heck of a mess everywhere.
