They’re Pretty in Patchwork, Too!

Do you have orphan blocks that you’re wondering what to do with? Make them into one-of-a-kind pot holders to brighten your kitchen. They make wonderful last-minute gifts, too.

Center the pattern on the block for the top of the potholder. The back can be made from another block or use a single piece of fabric.

The potholders are nice in simple patchwork, too, so have fun deciding how you’ll make yours. If you’re starting from scratch, put together a nice combination of 5″ or 2 1/2″ squares from your scraps.

Pockets on the back protect fingers nicely. While the finished size is not provided by the designer, Caroline from Sew Can She, they look like they’re about 8″ x 12″.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
