My “Little Friends Potholders” are made with fabric from a vintage 1960s quilt top. One square of the quilt had all these pairs of people on them. I cut them out and using more fabric from the same vintage quilt, made these potholders.
It’s the same quilt top that I used to make my Dog Potholders that I sold last week. The fabric speaks of the time the quilt was made. But these little friends, the relationship between the couples, seem timeless.
When I ran out of “Little Friends” I used a couple of jeans pockets that I had removed from their pants when I was making my November Snow quilt. I like that little wave of a line the stitches made. Like a hill or water.
