You can make them all different sizes, shapes, can get all fancy with applique and embellishments, or just use up some of those scrap squares that you have laying around. There is no right or wrong way to make them.
Just add batting to one of your squares, quilt as desired and add the binding.
You can use regular batting for inside but make sure it is 100% cotton for shrinkage. If your potholder is being made to be used and not just for decoration, make sure it is thick enough for heat not to penetrate through to your hands.
Here is a picture of a few of the Potholders that I had made. You never know when you need that quick, small gift.
So have fun and use your imagination. Don't forget, Mothers day is coming soon, I am sure she would love something homemade.
Well, I am back to my large quilt. One day away was way, to long, but it helped clear my thoughts to proceed.
HAPPY QUILTING EVERYONE....
HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT DAY.
