I'm so busy working on round robin quilts, I haven't had a chance to get around to doing a potholder. That's what I get for signing up for 2 round robins!  By the way Secret Santa, my kitchen is sunflowers and fall colors.

Kathy, what is the deadline again?

Comment by Kathy Gurgone on Sunday

As far as potholders go, I love bright colors and novelty prints, so if Superman or Betty Boop shows up in my kitchen, none of my relatives would be surprised.

Comment by Kathy Gurgone on Sunday

I am originally from a little city, Micanopy, Florida.  It doesn't even have a traffic light. They filmed the movie "Doc Hollywood" there and several of my family members were extras in the carnival scene.  My mom held onto the pig between takes in the movie, she said it was better trained than most people's dogs.  So if Florida shows up in my box, it will hang on my wall in Georgia.

I got my potholder to the binding stage, but am not happy with it, so set it aside for a few days. When I revisit it I will decide to bind it or start over. 

We will be leaving on vacation next Saturday ( April 21) 

i love shopping for (my recipient) when we travel! Visiting new places, finding new things. 

I guess I missed the Fons and Porter with the state blocks. I think it would be great to find a Michigan one in my box! Since Michigan is surrounded by wanted blues, lots of trees - greens,  flowers - I never ask for flowery anything but geese- I’ve had enough gray gloom ( although here we are middle of April & still lots of snow- bare dark trees and gray skies- I would want color, not gloom)

Thank you for the history lesson Mary!

Comment by Mary Moore on Saturday

Linda, I would love one for the library.  San Bernardino is the largest county in the world while my Nevada County(here in California) is gun shaped pointing at the state of Nevada for taking our name.  Nevada refers to snow in Spanish.

OK Ginny, if I ever get your name I will remember.

Here are the samples from the Fons & Porter magazine.

Comment by Linda Koller on Saturday

So I was going thru some old Fons & Porter magazines that a friend gave me yesterday. I came across a wall hanging of the individual states with their counties. Their sample happen to be my home state of Ohio. It was really nice altho I think I'd like it better in happier colors or colors that went with my color scheme. It's a great project for scraps. It could probably be made as a table runner or topper too. Would you like to see one of your state in your Secret Santa box? What color scheme? Wall hanging, table runner, or table topper?

I will cherish the Gnome quilt forever, Mary! LOL

Comment by Linda Koller on Saturday

Ruth Ann, don't forget to remember your SSS during your travels!

Mary, oh boy a gnome quilt! They are so cute!

And isn't it amazing that we all have something in common? We all love fabric and fabricy things!!! LOL 

I think I saw something earlier this week that said there's only 37 weeks till Christmas! Has anyone made their potholder yet? Let's see some posts.
