Patchwork Acorn Potholders Are Perfect for Autumn |
These Make Wonderful Gifts, Too!
Patchwork made from scraps, and a kitchen towel for backing, combine in charming potholders to use all through autumn. Get as creative as you want with color selections. Autumn colors are great, of course, but this will be fun in other colors as well.
This is an easy project so make several while you’re at it. A pair of potholders will make lovely housewarming and hostess gifts, as well as gifts for other occasions. You’ll be glad to already have some on hand.
The potholder uses Heat’n Bond Fusible Fleece (you’ll find it here) and a kitchen towel for heat proofing. You can also use cotton fabric for the backing and Insul-Bright batting to provide the heat proofing. We’d probably add Insul-Bright batting (find it here) anyway just to be sure it will hold up to removing hot things from the oven.
The instructions from Amanda Niederhauser and Therm-o-web do not say how large the finished potholders are but the photos show that they are generously sized.
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!
