    What thoughtful gifts!

    It takes another quilter to truly appreciate the time and effort that produces such lovely gifts!

    I was puzzled on how to put the loop on a potholder. Now, thanks to you, I can do it. Love them. :thumbup:

    I was too at first. My very first potholders I made different and had a little bit of a hard time. So I decided to make the strip for the loop first and then sew it on with the binding. These ones I made a mistake and sewed the loop onto the front of them.

    Great job!! I love the pillowcases. The potholders do take some time but are so much better than what you can find at a store and they last longer. Great idea for next year's Christmas gifts. I love the pepper fabric.

    Love the potholders. Did you put something in between the fabric to manage the heat?

    Thanks, I was going to make the body as I had made the cuff and then the cuff was going to be the yellow and a trim of violet, but I changed my mind. My next one I just might make it that way.
