I found myself not being as precise as I should be because I knew something that little wouldn't show after I washed the quilt. I knew that to take myself to the next level that I would need to practice that fine motor skill so I decided to make a pot cozy with some orphan blocks that I had.
I had accidentally made these two birds backwards for a bee I was in but I loved them so I surrounded them in bright coordinating solids and spruced them up with some quilting around the edges.
Here is the front:

And here are some close ups of the quilting that I did on the edges:
This one is my favorite. :)
Pebbling can use some work on this side.
I would like to play with these two on a bigger scale:
I had a strip left over and Alex kept asking for a bookmark so I made the leftover strip into a bookmark. A THICK bookmark. Hey, it's the thought that counts. I also sent some Banana Bread to make up for the unuseable bookmark. :)
I'm glad with the progress I have made but I still have a long way to go. Don't we all?
