So, the last two weeks was a real quickie - we made Microwaveable Bowls. I first spotted this gem on Judith's blog and searched further for info. I found a great tutorial here that indicated that this great wee project could not be attributed to any one person in particular.
I followed Kathy's advice and emphasised the need for 100% cotton, down to obtaining enough Quilter's Dream cotton wadding to go around all my classes. This has proved to be a bit of a bonus as I have been stuck in a Hobbs 80/20 rut for years now but having felt and used Quilter's Dream I am definitely going to give it a try in a quilt.
So our bowls were very achievable within our class time of 2 hours, several ladies had time to twiddle their thumbs too!!
I really recommend these bowls - great for porridge, of course, but also soups etc, anything hot that you scoff from a bowl.
Meanwhile, I got going on Block 2 of Jen Kingwell's BOM which is being featured each month in the new magazine, Today's Quilter. This month was a 6" block.
And I also got to work on my Secret Santa Sewing for Bee a Brit Stingy, the brilliant online Bee that I am part of. More later.
And finally, can't resist sharing this nugget.........indulge me.
