    September POM

    ~September~ Project of the Month
    Sign up until August 31st Mail by September 30th


    This months project ….A Set (2) of POT HOLDERS
    My hope is that you will step out of your comfort zone with these, Try something new……a new shape, size, technique you could make them oven mitts or even one of those cool “double oven mitts” (these count as 2)


    A set (2) of Pot Holders, embellished any way you choose.
    There are no precise directions or criteria. I only ask that your finished project be something that you would be excited to receive.


    If you’d like to join, please send a pm to me tlambing and include the following


    Real Name
    Phone #
    Email address
    Severe Allergies
    Can you swap Internationally?


    Sign ups will be open until Wednesday August 31st. Names out soon after. You will have until September 30th to mail your project.


    I’d really like to keep this about the project, so I am going to ask that we not send extra goodies. This will help to keep postage down as well as helping us not feel an obligation to shower our partner with gifts. If you feel you must do something extra, how about writing a poem or drawing a picture or sharing a joke or even a recipe? I bet you can think of something!


    As soon as names are given, please contact your partner right away.
    Please contact me asap if you are having trouble getting in contact.
    Please continue to post on the thread throughout the swap. Let everyone know of your progress, post sneak peeks and encourage other swappers. It’s so much fun seeing everyones progress and sharing in our quilting friendship.


    I ask that you let me know when you send your project and when you receive from your partner.
    Any swapper that does not follow through with their obligation to the swap will be banned from future swaps and will receive negative (swap) feedback.
    ****Please make sure to read the general rules that apply to all swaps here on the quilting board****

    Well, at first I thought "nah, I have lots of potholders", then I thought some more and said "gee, I have some cool ideas that I've never put onto fabric." I'll think on it some more before committing.

    Just had the question: "Do they have to be the same?"

    That is totally up to you!

    I have a couple of pot holders that are waiting to be done that are UFOs. Nice thing is they are embroidered so won't have to quilt them and use my left arm. Put on injured list by doc for tennis elbow. Big bummer, he is limiting my quilting activity and I have so many customer quilts, fair exhibits, and show quilts to do.

    I will play along on this one.

    2 handed potholders

    How did I ever cook without them?! I made this set for DD's future MIL.
    Can't wait to make some for holiday bakers with cookie fabric! Try some, not hard.
    Mine have Insulbrite inside. Pattern from "Crafty Gemini".

    Here's a quick peek. I finished them early as lots of appointments coming up in the next couple weeks. I should have picked a spot that had better sewing. My eyes just aren't that good anymore.

    So I haven't made a two-handed hotpad before and thought I'd practice. Needed a hostess gift anyway since I am flying north to spend a few days with one of my quilty friends. Here is what I made her combining ideas from a couple of tutorials. Bought a high quality used black bath towel at a yard sale ($1) and cut it to use as part of padding. Happy with this one...we'll see what I think of for my partner next month!Name:  IMG_1807.JPG

    Forgot to ask how long are you making the double pot holders and how wide? Is there a certain measurement or a are you just playing it by ear?

    Mary, the size of the double potholder depends on the pattern. Mine was 24" long and 8" wide. The "pockets" were around 6" x 8". If you Google you will find many tutorials, and each has a little different spin.

    I am not great at this type of sewing but have made more than a dozen of these potholders. Try one.
