    I haven't done much quilting; however, I am very interested in making the folded star quilted potholder with round pieces instead of square. My 86 year old aunt used to make them but she can't remember all the pattern and how to put them together. She still is very active; crochets a lot and we both want to make more of these beautiful potholders. Does anyone know about this pattern? Thanks

    Can't help you with the pattern, but there's a good chance someone else will know where to find it :wink:

    Hello, and welcome form Missouri. I have seen the pattern, but can't remember just where. And I don't know how to do the linky thing here on the posts. :?

    Welcome from NE CA. Glad you joined us. I have the folded star pattern, I'll have to find it in my sewing room, it'll probably be a few days before I can do that, if you would like to wait, if not, probably someone on board has it and knows exactly where it is. If you want to wait, PM me with your address and I'll let you know when I find it and when I send it.

    Welcome! You'll have fun here! I found this via this web site: http://www.quilt.com/KaffeeKlatsch/FAQS/GiftFAQ.html Could this be the pattern you're looking for? The author has some great patterns she has shared!

    Folded Star Pot Holder

    * Cut two circles appx. 8inches in diameter. (I used a pot lid) use any color or print.
    * Cut one circle (the same size) of batting.
    * Cut 12 5" inch squares from printed material (these will be squares A)
    * cut 8 5" inch squares from solid material (these will be squares B)

    Fold each square in half and then bring the ends up to the center like we use to do to make a paper airplane. press as you go. Each square will look like a triangle. It is very important you get a sharp point.

    Now find the center of one of the circles by folding in half and then into forths. Spread out the circle and place 4 of the triangles A in the center of the circle with the points all touching and tack down the points with thread. using all 8 of triangles B lay each point on top of the lines in the 4 A triangles about 1/2 inch from the center where triangles A are tacked down. Tack these points down. Repeat the layer using the rest of triangles B on top of triangles A. You may want to tack down the corners to keep the whole mess from flopping around.

    Now sandwich the circles and batting and baste around. Using triple fold binding tape the same color as the solid material sew it around the pot holder and sew a loop on the back edge.

    Hope this is not too complicated!! Please use 100% cotton as polyester will burn on a hot pot! The solid and print triangles can be switched to make the first four points solided then layer a row of print.

    Just want to say how much I appreciate all you all welcoming me and for the person that gave me the circle pattern, I am going to try it and see what I come up with. My aunt will be with me next Tuesday to help me play around with all the circles. She is a joy to be with, so funny and can get things done.
    Thanks again all of you.
