Happy Holidays with new potholders

Last year (yes, last year) at Christmas I told my mother that I would make her some new potholders since her's were rather sad looking.  So last night I sat down and made some.  While I was making some, I made some extras to give to my mother-in-law as well.  They're simple pinwheel blocks with a layer of Insulbright inside as insulation.  I made 8 total using Kansas Troubles fabrics and then tied them up in bundles of 4 each using some Moda canvas ties I had from some fabric layercakes.  Hope they like them!


  1. They make great presents for Xmas, did you use any special kind of batting?

  2. I just used a single later of Insulbright in them, since I didn't want them to be too stiff.

  3. They look very pretty. What a thoughtful and useful gift.
