If you like to sew or quilt, I know you have lots of fabric scraps! I know I sure do! So I thought it would be fun to run a Free Quilted Pot Holder Block Quilt-a-long with you all! Yay! You can download the Full length pattern here:
Each block is a basic design that would look great as a pot holder. If you are not interested in making pot holders, you can still join in! You can use your 8 1/2 inch unfinished blocks in a quilt. You could make a couple throw pillows. Or whatever your heart desires.
The first week you will receive the fabric requirements if you would like to complete all of your pot holders with the same fabric. Each 8 1/2 inch unfinished block requires a small amount of fabric, this would be a great way to use up some scrap. You will also receive directions how to assemble your pot holders (binding method and a non binding method). So by the end of the quilt-a-long you will have 6 pot holders (or 6 sets if you do two pot holders a week). These are a great way to freshen up your kitchen. They also make great gifts!
When picking out your fabrics and thread, make sure to only use 100% Cotton!! If you use polyester it will melt if it catches fire. If you use Cotton it will just smolder.
The Fabric requirements are for ONE of each block (6 pot holder total). If you would like to make sets (2 of each block) DOUBLE the fabric amounts.
You can also join my Happy Cloud Quilted Pot Holder Quilt-a-long Group on Facebook to share all of your fabric choices, progress and pretty finished blocks and what you decided to make them into!
