I'm going to try Bearland53's method of binding, I hate binding potholders. The method sounds easy and quick. I have tried serging the edges but it's not the look I wanted.

Very nice pot holders and ones that will help protect your hands when handling hot objects. If you don't want to bind the pot holders, "birth" them, then stitch 1/4" to 1/2" around the border after quilting the center section. It's much faster and gives the effect of binding. I once made 25 small, 10" wall hangings for a family reunion, so I used the birthing method to finish them, quilted them, then stitched around the outside border; so much less work and they looked fine.

Love your pot holders! I made 4 with the Tinsel Brite and layers as you mentioned. Didn't have any blocks as cute as are yours, but use some orphan blocks. Am saving them for Christmas!!

I guess anything is possible. But, I like a binding on mine.

Surprisingly they were very easy to quilt.
