Scrappy Potholder

Thank you so much for your nice comments on my Kitchen Floor Mat! I am so excited that Quilt Story featured me on Fabric Tuesday. I must say, I was all giddy seeing my photo on someone else's blog! I am delighted that you like the quilted floor mat. I hope you make one, and if you do, please let me know. I am here to help!

I am doing a private swap with a friend I met through this space. She liked the colors I used for the Kitchen Floor Mat, so I thought I would make her a pot holder with my scrap fabrics from that project. I think it came out quite cute, but I will let her be the judge!

The front.

As with all of the pot holders I make, I always use Insul-Bright batting to provide insulation. I am pretty sure most local fabric stores are now carrying this; they sell this by the yard. I layered my hot potholder in the follow order: quilt top, insul-bright, regular batting, and the backing. I think two layers of batting are appropriate for hot potholders. I wouldn't want my friend or myself to get burned!

The back.

Ha! It matches the mat so well. Time to make myself one!
