PieceMaker Potholders

What, another potholder – nope not just one, two !

Perhaps I should have named my blog ‘PieceMaker Potholders’, I have really been on a potholder craze lately 🙂


Yes, they were paper pieced and I think I’m hooked ! There are 31 pieces to the front. Well, 32, if you count the binding.

The fabrics above are mostly Denyse Schmidt, a few blenders from a fabric shop and I think that solid is called lipstick.

The second one is made using some Amy Butler fabric, Dear Stella, Bonnie and Camille plus random blenders. I love going scrappy and plundering my stash. But what a mess that process creates ! – no, not showing you a picture of that !


The author actually calls these trivets, from the book ‘Patchwork Please’, by Ayumi Takahashi. They were so much fun to put together, I’m sure I’ll be making more.

Thanks for having a look. Please leave a comment – you’ll find it up at the top of the post by the date.

Have a great weekend – the weather is supposed to be positively spring-like here !

linking up with Amanda for Finish it up Friday.

    These are really great Colleen. I’ve never seen anything like them before. A very good advert for paper piecing. Hope you have a lovely weekend. We’ve had a beautiful week in the south of the UK but we’re promised a change back to chilly for the weekend!
