bowls with borders blog hop

Today is my day to show you the bowls that I made for the Bowls With Borders Blog Hop.
(The dates for this hop are August 13 through August 28.)

First of all, I want to thank Regina for making such a fun pattern and sharing it
with those of us who are participating in the blog hop.  You can buy her pattern here.

I also want to thank the organizers, Madame Samm from Sew WE Quilt
 and Carol from Just Let Me Quilt.

Here is the mini quilt that I made using Regina's pattern for paper piecing!
(Click on the pictures for a closer look.)

Chili Bowls
This mini measures 12 X 16 inches.  It was made with shot cotton and osnaburg
 cotton fabric, along with old buttons and crochet thread.


I added a little embroidery on the chili bowls in different colors and
then I hand stitched using the same threads.


I always enjoy seeing how the stitches look on the back,
 how about you?



Be sure to visit the other participants and see all their lovely bowl creations!

Here is a list for todays blog hop:

August 14

Elizabeth. Very beautiful work! Working with solids in the shot cottons is a lovely way to help showcase your stitching. And to hand quilt - gasp!, I haven't done that in a long time and it is a lovely thing to behold. Btw - I spent 3 years in southern Africa, got married there. I need to send you an email about that (after I finish looking at the other blogs today).

Elizabeth, great job on your bowls ...they look like Fiesta Ware! Love the hand stitching, thanks for sharing, have a wonderful week!!

Cyndi loves to stitch said...

Wow, that had stitching adds just the right touch to your bowls!!! I never quite know how to "finish" a project, you know, how to quilt it, embellish it. But I like the idea of colored thread lines you added. Being a stitcher too, I may incorporate some thread colors in my plain ole white background. Thanks for being a part of the hop. I am learning all kinds of things!!

Sophie said...

Very nice embroirery on the bowls, it's a good idea!
