Hi Quilting Friends,
Welcome to the “Show Your Stripes” blog hop, courtesy of our quilting friend Carla at “Creatin’ in the Sticks”. We’re excited to see all of the stellar striped projects from other participating bloggers!
As we were choosing a project to feature for this blog hop, we spent some time looking at previous efforts. Wow! We have a LOT of quilts that feature stripes! From binding, to sashing, to piecing, to appliqued animals, there are stripes galore in Ms P’s portfolio. We’re literally showing our stripes with this slide show:
Sharon decided to create a pair of patriotic hot pads, as a way to show her stripes while protecting the hands that serve hot food! A pair of new hot pads seems to be Sharon’s go-to project, and no wonder! Here’s a picture of some of her other hot pads.
Not much protection there! I can certainly do better, and include some striking stripes while I’m at it.
The “Patriotic Star” block was part of our 2018 BOM program, and one of my favorites! I made two of the 7″ x 7″ square blocks, and then added a narrow frame of background fabric. I used a layer of fusible fleece and a layer of Insul-Bright to prevent burns during use. (Always a good thing!) A patriotic print on the back side, along with navy binding and a hanging loop complete the hot pads.
We hope that you’ve enjoyed seeing our many striped projects today! How do you like to use stripes in your own quilting projects? Leave a comment- it makes our day! Please keep reading to find the list of today’s participating bloggers.
