The rumours are true…

Yes, I’ve been making potholders again !




Maybe I should call them “Mini Mini Quilts “. What ever they are called I really enjoy making them and they are such a good way of seeing if you like making a block and working out colour placement. Colour and scale can really change when put in context, don’t you think ?

They measure 8.5″ square and have a layer of batting and a layer of insulbright. I cut my double fold binding 2.5”.

Here’s a shot of the backs, for the quilting I like to stitch in the ditch.


I just love that light blue binding on the middle one. It’s called Algeria by Kona.


Cute fabric, huh ? Wish I could remember the name of it !


Thanks for having a look.

Enjoy your weekend.

I’ll be linking up with CrazyMomQuilts for Finish it Up Friday.

and WIP’s Be Gone.

    Another great collection of pot holders Colleen! I really like the clever way you’ve placed the fabrics in the octagonal design ☺ Adding it to my Pins of the Week Pinterest board – I think the term is ‘quilting eye candy’!
