Sewing Pot Holders from Extra Quilt Blocks

If you have extra quilt blocks left over from your latest quilting project, use them to make beautiful pot holders or hot pads! These make wonderful handmade gifts…or maybe you will just keep them to brighten you own kitchen.


As I was cleaning up from my holiday-sewing-room-disaster, I found two orphan quilt blocks left over from my Mosiac Tiles Quilt {here}. So of course I decided to make pot holders (they are one of my favorite projects because new potholders make your whole kitchen seem new, right?).  You can see from the front that I quilted them with a wonky square spiral.


But the backs of the potholders might be more fun than the front. 🙂 I sewed some white and blue chevron hand-pockets (to match the dark blue chevron binding) and put the pockets on top of a pretty pink floral backing. All of these fabrics are Riley Blake. The inside of these potholders is a layer of insulbrite (insulated batting) in between two layers of warm and natural batting. I don’t want anyone getting burned!

Here is another cute set of pot holders I made, click over for the free tutorial!
