This set of two quilted patchwork pot holders feature a pretty, golden yellow floral print paired with coral pink. All quality cotton fabrics used, with a off white muslin backing. The patchwork pattern I used on the fronts is an old traditional one called churn and dash. Notice the hanging loops on the back! This allows you have the convenience of hanging them nearby your cooktop or displaying them as part of your decor.

Size of each is about 7.5 inches square (19 cm).

When creating potholders, I use two inner layers… one is my regular 80/20 batting and the other is a thermal lining called Insul Bright.  This added layer makes a nice thick mat with added heat protection. 

For care, I always wash mine in with regular wash… simple, easy care, no fussing!

Whether gifting to yourself or others, these will deliver good service in the kitchen for years, and they are pretty enough for serving on the dining table.

Features

I always use quality fabrics and thread. In addition to good quality materials, I am conscientious about making sure I use a full seam allowance. I never leave fabrics holding together by a few threads. This ensures a quality, handmade item, that will withstand normal care and use for many years.

The inner batting layer is usually Pellon or Hobbs 80/20. Occasionally I use a bamboo batting.

Binding is always double thickness and attached by machine for added durability, with neat mitered corners.

The nice thing about quilts is that the more you use them the softer and more snuggly they become. Don’t be afraid to use them wherever you want to be…. outside under the tree, in your car, on a picnic, on the hammock, in the family room, etc. After all, we wear cotton fabrics everyday in our clothes… your quilt won’t fall apart before it gets well loved!

Remember that sunlight will fade any fabric, and your quilt is no exception.  So; have a care when you leave it outside frequently or in a sunny window.

Care

I have often washed my own quilts in with a regular wash load, with no regrets. However, it is still recommended to use a gentle cycle, mild soap and tumble drying on low heat. (** Note: I rarely prewash my fabrics. Expect a small amount of shrinkage on the first laundering.) It is the tumble drying that achieves the soft crinkly look that we associate with handmade quilts. If you prefer a flatter look, lay flat to air dry… do not dry in the dryer. 

Packaging & Shipping

I package all my items responsibly, first with a care for your purchase and then with a desire to reuse and recycle any shipping material I have around. I also refund shipping overages.
