Ice cream to keep your hand cool! GRUPEN WALLPAPER

Thank you so much for your  fabric shelf block  love!! Each and every one of  your comment made my heart sing! Apparently I am not alone loving seeing  fabrics on the shelf! Today I want to show you this potholder I whipped up for my friend's birthday. The ice cream dish pattern is one of the Dishy Treats (August pattern for the  Super Penguin QAL available here ). My friend liked the patterns when I showed them,  so I thought she may not mind receiving a potholder with one of the patterns  showcased on ;) This potholder came out together very quickly!  I basically paper-pieced the ice cream block first (no changes to the size was made),  and quilted it with warm and natural cotton batting and quilting weight cotton backing.

I love fabric shopping and I know you do too ;) There is something about walking into the fabric store and seeing lovely fabric on the bolt on the shelf. It fires me up to go look for some fun fabrics! I love the vibe and I know I will always appreciate any opportunity to go fabric shoppin

I am so excited to tell you that these patterns are now available through superbuzzy !! This pattern includes four different dishy treats shown above!  I had so much fun paper-piecing them and I hope you'll have tons of fun with them too! It has been so wonderful to see everyone's popsicles popping up in this flickr pool ! (I'd love it if you joined us to share your popsicles and dishy treat blocks there!!)

I am very nervous as usual, but hopefully some of you will have fun with these patterns!!! Hope you are having a great week so far!! Mine has been crazy busy but fantastic!
