These are the potholders that inspired me to make my Autumn Oak Leaf Quilt. I had this old patchwork pillow sham and cut it apart to make these potholders. The tiny squares that made up the pillow sham have some great colors and patterns on them. They’re beautifully faded with age, making them soft and muted. I also used the fabric that was on the back of the patchwork ( the pale blue with red flowers and swirls, a piece of it inspired my Hibernation Quilt) and a blue and white checkered piece of fabric that was between the front and back. The hot pinks come from Jonne, scraps she had from a trip to….(oh now I can’t remember where, but someplace exotic). The rest of the fabric, I pulled from my collection.
These are my Peace and Flower Potholders. Some of them have peace signs and they all have flowers. The fabric comes from Mrs Pam (Remember Mrs. Pam’s Quilt, made from fabric that Mrs Pam, the preschool teacher, sent me. She makes dresses for girls who need them and I got her scarps, thank you Mrs. Pam) and from some of Lenore’s bandana’s, and a few pieces from my stash (their history, long forgotten). Bright and cheery, juxtaposed by winters dark days.
All these potholders are $15 each + $5 shipping for 1 or 2 and $7 shipping for 3 or more in the US. Shipping is slightly higher outside the US. I take checks or can email a paypal invoice. So if you see something you like, just email me at [email protected].
