Look what I got in the mail today! Aren’t they beautiful?! Kerry of Freckled Beauties in Canada sent these gorgeous potholders to me for the Potholder Pass swap. I think they’re too pretty to use so I may just hang them on my refrigerator for awhile.
She included a lovely note and said this was her first time paper piecing, “I hope it’s not obvious.” Well, I think they’re perfect! I love the quilting design on these. Just click on the picture if you want to know how she made these blocks.
All potholders are due by mid-February so there’s about another week left to get ‘em all done. I am so happy that I finished my set and they’re on their way to their new home:
I used two simple block designs for my set: Hole in the Barn and Puss in the Corner. These were pretty easy to make, except I had a little problem with the loop. I tried to follow this tutorial but for some reason my brain just wasn’t getting it. I finally figured it out and am pleased with the way they came out.
