A dirty little secret

Ok, I’m admitting it, I abuse my potholders. I wash them and all, but everyone of them has been burned, spilled on, and knowing my family, has most likely been used for non-cooking purposes.


Really, there is no excuse for my potholders.

So I’m taking a break from my appliqué deadline project to clean up my potholder situation.

I’m starting with two little blocks…


Now I have the specialty thermo batting, but how many layers do you normally use? Do I really need those loops in the corner? Is square really the best shape for a potholder? Should I make more of these blocks and turn it into a mini quilt?

Oh my, this is so stressful….Now I know why my potholders look like they do!

Hugs and stitches!

    Those are so pretty I’d have a hard time using them! I burn my potholders all the time. Gimme some cheapies…..

    I love your blocks. Dresdens are so pretty. I make my potholders with scraps so they are very colorful. I use one layer of Insul-Brite and one layer of 100% cotton batting in my potholders. I put the Insul-Brite on the bottom. Loops are easy to make just by looping extra binding up. Have fun.

    Don’t waste such pretty blocks on potholders!
