Making Potholders Is Like A Jigsaw Puzzle


My Butterfly Potholder that I designed from fabric in my scrap bin

When I make potholders from my scrap bin, it’s like I’m doing a big jigsaw puzzle.  I have all the misshapen pieces of fabric in piles, and I get to find the ones that go together.

Designing potholders is instant gratification for me.  First with each piece of fabric I sew together then in being able to make, what I see as, a very small quilt very quickly.
