How it worked was we each got a name of one Portland guild member (along with their blog name, flickr group, etc.) Each provided a little guidance about what colors they might like. Other than that the only rule was that the potholder had to incorporate a log cabin block somehow.
I first cyber-stalked my person. I found out her name is Michelle Freedman and her blog is called Design Camp. After stalking her for a while to get a sense of her style, I decided to do whatever I want and threw her suggestions to the wind! Here's what I did for her.
|I made oven mitt potholders! I traced my hand and used that as the template. Then I made an over-sized log cabin block and traced the template onto freezer paper and cut out the log cabin.|
|I love the prints. You know I don't collect a lot of prints, so these are all new to me! How did she know I like orange? Maybe she stalked me!|
|I'm using it already. Here I am making chili last night!|
