i know, more potholders, is that even possible?

I had a request from my sister-in-law to make some potholders for her mother.  I really liked the way they turned out.  Her only request was to include her mother’s favorite color: yellow!

I definitely wanted to try out the ‘house’ type block as well as the wonky log cabin block. They were both really fun.  I used Tallgrass Prairie Studio’s wonky block tutorial, just because I had no idea what I was doing.  I mostly just looked at her pretty pictures. 

And have you seen this quilt yet?  It’s amazingly detailed, I can’t even imagine how long it must have taken to make.

    I don’t think you can have too many potholders. For me, they are the closest thing to a quilt that I will ever make. They are simple, yet look like quality when they are done. These yellow ones are beautiful and love that wonky log cabin.
