    nice potholders! Only thing is when they are so pretty you don't want to "use" them :D They make nice gifts. I have thought about buying the potholder book I have seen in quilt stores but...decided maybe I just like spending money and really don't need the book ....just make them out of left over quilt squares.

    Those would be so fun to do for gifts. I didn't know you could use batting in them. I love yours.

    Hey at least you are still working on quilting! Your mojo is working just fine, you just needed a little break after the maraton you ran with so many gorgeous quilts gcathie!
    I love making pot holders, it gives me a little break from the big projects I usually take on.
    Your colors are great for your potholders. Very nice!

    Cool! Great use of left-over batting, and these would make wonderful stocking stuffers for my family at Christmastime!

    Poly batting in a pot holder is a bad idea, it melts if you use cast iron cookware like I do.
    I use 4-5 layers of warm & natural batting, everything in a pot holder needs to be cotton unless you're using insul-bright(heat resistant batting)
