Mr and Mrs Trivet
As many of you that are on Instagram saw last night I was struggling to decide which fabrics to use to make my embroidered faces into trivets.
I loved the Cotton and Steel face dot print and found these adorable faces to embroider.
I think they match pretty well!
I determined I wanted to use black and white along with the face dots for the trivets.
The pattern for the trivet is from the book Patchwork Please.
I don't even know how many of these I've made and I love every one!
These were the fabrics I pulled for the first trivet:
On Instagram last night, everyone chose the bottom one. It was my first choice too.
TaDa!! The top of the trivet is all finished!
I need to quilt it and then bind it.
I don't like the binding part much on these.
Joining the ends it tough!
If it is not too late at night I will try to take some photos as I do this, but we will see.
Sometimes trying to take pics is difficult and hindered by the fact that I only have 2 hands...go figure!
I am extremely happy with how she turned out!
I have a backing to make tonight for the birdie quilt. I will show that one tomorrow.
I don't have great photos of the top, so maybe, if it doesn't rain I will try to get some.
I need to piece the back tonight before I can begin on the second trivet.
What are you working on??
