Made for each other

What was in Q(read as queue as well ;)) for me was Quilting. This thought was lingering on my mind for quite some time "Why not grab the opportunity for the 2-in-1 sewing challenge ". When i sat on this Saturday about thinking which project i shall choose for this challenge, a lot of ideas came flying! I decided to make Quilted Pot Holders which can be used as Mug Rugs as well.:)

Many thanks to Rikka of Ricochet and Away for hosting this challenge !!


Since it my first attempt to go quilting i wanted a quilting project for beginners and at the same time something cute and adorable and Quick as i was running short of time and I had to finish it in few hours. Thats when i thought of a heart shape!!.

Used 2 fabrics and mix and match they went. After i made the first pot holder i wanted to try something differnet and thats when chevron came to my mind and my second pot holder is with zig zag stitching.

Wouldnt it be great if every project we sewed was a multipurpose sewing project!

Thats the short and simple story of two hearts. LOL..

The Pattern i used was downloaded from here.


P.S : I have linked up my project to all/some of the links 


  1. I love the fabric and the chevron quilting! Nice job!

  2. Awesome!!!

    Coming out with a two hearts concept is good and stitching pattern(esp zig zag and heart shape) makes it look different and attractive:-)

    Well done good job:-)

  3. Your pot holders / mug rugs look great!!! Love the greens and lemon colours together.

  4. I love the heart shape!
    Very clever and practical!
