Iron Craft #30 HOT! HOT! HOT!

I know it is July and it is suppose to be hot but we have had hotter weather than normal. It is funny-here in the Frozen Tundra we have had a 128 degree temperature swing between -25 in January to 103 this summer. We get it all.

This week for Iron Craft we were challenged to make something with the theme of hot. I thought right away about pot holders. Not sure why, maybe because mine are in really bad shape. I have never made these before but they were super easy. I did a little online research and decided to just go for it.

It's hot- pot holders

It's hot- pot holder

I tried 2 different ways of quilting and definitely learned a few things. I am thinking these might be on my project list to make for Christmas gifts.

Thing 1 was busy working on another project this week. The results will be shown soon and Thing 2 did what everyone wants to do in hot weather- he headed to the cabin and is playing all week in the lake. If he ever returns he will be back in action :)

Check back tomorrow to find out why I have gone crazy and to meet my model, Emelie for Project Project Runway.

They turned out really good & I don't even see the puckers you were talking about.
