This is Madam Samm's @ Sew We Quilt last blog hop of the year! But I am already signed up for the first one in the 2014. It really has been a great year making all kinds of creations for the blog hops! Thank you Madam Samm for being such a great coach! I would also like to thank
Vickie @ More Star's in Comanche
for being our head cheerleader for this hop!
Every year we eat Thanksgiving Dinner at Mammaw & Pappaw's house and each year we are digging through drawers for enough pot holders for all the food to be put on the table. Recently, while destashing I found this Thanksgiving & pinecone fabric and thought I would make some pot holders for Mammaw. I went out and bought a few yards of Insul-Bright and Warm & Natural cotton batting, by The Warm Company, and went to work.
First I made (4) small pot holders!
Then I had a bright idea!
We needed a giant pot holder, so what about a runner with Insul-Bright in between (4) layers of cotton batting, to put the hot food on the table! It would look nice and would take care of the problem.

I fell in love with Urban Farm and bought it to make a quilt for David but Hubby said it had to many flowers! I have held onto it for the perfect project and when I found out about the blog hop I knew this was it!
It just needed a few more birds!
By adding a rooster and a few hens with eggs (of course) using appliqué. Each row of hens has their own rooster! Now, hubby really loves this quilt and so do I. The light was fading and I needed a photo before the sun went down so you may see a few wonder clips from my unfinished binding (12"). What is a girl to do! Get the picture when the light is there that's what!
