    misappropriated potholders

    I suddenly realized I was down to 2 potholders because my DH was hanging them where he could see them (and lots of other quilts) from his recliner. I reached into my orphan block drawer and pulled out blocks to turn into potholders. One even dated back to the second year of my quilting journey. I guess you would not be surprised that my DH grabbed two, so I'll have to make more! The first is the fronts.

    Well that is such a wonderful idea. Making a potholder out of quilt squares. Love it! and I love yours. They all look so 'happy'. I see why hubby wants to look at them... lol

    Thank you. I am now up to 4 potholders in the kitchen, down from a dozen a couple of months ago. My Oops blocks and orphans nearly always are incorporated into something, usually scrappy quilts.

    I think that's cute that your hubby likes them so much he wants to hang them and look at them!

    Too pretty to use in the kitchen. Nice way to use up some scraps. Tell hubby if he is taking your pot holders, he has to cook supper.
