I love quilting all year round, but especially love quilting after New Year’s because nothing makes the New Year more bright and homey than DIY decorative accessories made from patchwork remnants fashioned into the incredible farmhouse look quilting brings. I had some fabric jellyrolls I bought on sale at JoAnn’s Fabrics for next to nothing but didn’t quite know what I was going to do with them. I went searching on Youtube for a great quilting idea for my newly remodeled kitchen and I found this beautiful 10-minute potholder idea and could not wait to try it! I started by Then I just followed the simple instructions and made my basic square pot holder shape. Here are the basic measurement instructions. For the scrappy quilt look you will need:
9 (3 x 3 inch) Squares, 1 (8 1/2 inch) Square, and 1 (8 1/2 inch) Square of Batting. Starting with the small squares place the right sides together and begin stitching them together.
Then you nake a sandwich with the quilt block you just made, the batting, and the backing fabric. Now sew, right sides together, leaving a 2 inch gap at the top center.
Then turn your project right side out using the 2-inch gap at the top center, then place your hook holder in the gap and sew shut. You can topstitch the whole thing now, but that is entirely optional.
This potholder is so quick, so easy, and so cheap and makes an excellent housewarming or birthday gift. This project does not disappoint!
