Tuesday was guild day and after the regular meeting, a member instructed us as we made a potholder or trivet using the Cotton Theory quilting method. It has 2 good sides. Here is mine finished.
I have seen Betty Cotton demonstrate her techniques several times on “Sewing with Nancy” and have wanted to try it. Now that I have, I don’t know that I will do any more. I have a lot of respect for the work that it took for Clara or anyone to make a full size bed quilt using this method. It takes a tremendous amount of preparation cutting the top and backing fabric pieces as well as the batting pieces.
I’m making progress on the floral pinwheel quilt. I started laying out pinwheel blocks but my design wall is not large enough. I thought about laying them on the floor but decided to use the guest bed as my design area instead. This gives you an idea.
I also tried grouping the colors but I think they should be mixed up.
