Rainbow Challenge June Purple House and Pot Holder


Finished another house and pot holder, this time in purple. This is the second house block I've made using Bonnie Hunter's "Happy House" pattern from her Quiltville website. I like this pattern :D
I continue to make superhero and Star Wars pillowcases for grands.
Finished the Salt Air quilt top. I'm currently piecing the backing and hope to start quilting it Sunday or Monday.
The library sent me a text. The latest True Blood series book is waiting for me to collect. I haven't finished Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter yet. It's on the table beside my bed along with an Amelia Peabody Mystery that I've almost finished.
Vampires and mummies. There maybe more reading than sewing this week.

Love both blocks. I really like that little butterfly flying into the door on the house block.

Cute purple house - now you're making me want to try that block! I'd be interested to hear what you think of AL Vampire Hunter. The movie was shot here in New Orleans, but I haven't decided if I want to read the book!

Cute house block and potholder. Hmmm think I need to try the house block. Yours in great - love the window.
I am puzzeled why your blog doesn't show up on my blog-roll... I will try 'following' again. ;-)

Love the purple house - with a butterfly in the doorway! (About a decade ago we went to Pacific Grove, Ca to see the monarchs wintering. They commune there in great profusion on the eucalyptus trees. We asked a local shopkeeper if she knew where we might find some, and she told us that when she was a girl there were so many during the winter that they would fly into your house when you opened the door. I guess the people in your purple house are having that kind of trouble! - Thanks for that memory...)
Hugs!

Sheila, those are my favorite colors! Love the potholder. Edges are done so clean, how do you do it? Make a photo post on how to make those potholders, I am sure you'll have many "thanks" going your way. :)
