    1 Charm Pack---10 Potholders!

    I was given a charm pack of Kate Spain's modern line of fabric (Central Park); I like the modern fabrics, but I don't use them in my quilts. What to do? Make potholders!

    The orange ones are put aside to gift at some future date.

    The blue ones I made specifically for an upcoming bridal shower. With a little extra yardage of one of the fabrics, I made a couple of butterfly mitts and a casserole holder!

    Very nice. It is good to know that we have the advantage of making our potholders with every thing getting so high.

    They are beautiful. I love the orange ones, but they all are nice. I would have never thought to make potholders with a charm pack. Love the butterfly ptoholders.

    How clever! I love these colors for potholders. Hummm... I might just have to borrow your idea.

    So pretty! Very inspirational! I have a book on pot holders I think I might have to get it out. I forgot what nice gifts they could be!

    I love your clever potholders! They would gorgeous hanging on the wall in the kitchen, like a mini quilt gallery.

    I love these, especially those winged mitts and the casserole cover. Where could I find those patterns?

    These are really cute and you did a great job on them. I've never seen the butterfly ones before. Very clever.
