Put Several Blocks Together and Make a Matching Table Runner!

The ladies at Art Threads have developed a wonderful potholder pattern using the North Star block. We love the rounded corners on these little gems!

While they’re meant to be potholders, they are actually tiny mini quilts. We can see several, in various colors, clustered together on a small wall, with some of them hung on point.

The beauty of this pattern is that several blocks can be sewn together for a table runner – or a larger wall quilt. And, you can easily vary the fabrics to match the season.

The Christmas potholders can be seen here.

They’re fun made up in 4th of July fabrics, too. Imagine how lovely they’ll be in your favorite fabrics!

There are also instructions for a table runner to match the Christmas potholders. You simply make more blocks and stitch them together into a mini quilt. Or, add another row of star blocks and make a Christmas quilt for your wall!

We love patterns like this that can be easily modified. Change the fabrics to suit any season or decor (can’t you see a fussy cut print in the center?). Or, use more blocks to increase the size of the finished piece.
