Potholder Pass 4

Amy Friendpotholder pass swap, quilting9 Comments

I just completed a set of potholders for Potholder Pass 4. I couldn’t decide if I liked them best on the red barn…

or the white. So here you have both! My design was inspired by this quilt. I decided that I wanted to try something in solids which seems to be the current trend. I based my color selection from the one print that I used, Anna Maria Horner’s “Up All Night” from her Garden Party line. I fussy cut pieces of it to use for half circles and used it for the backing as well.

I also wanted to try this project in reverse applique. I used taupe colored linen and a matching thread to applique with a zig zag stitch.

I feel like I am having a hard time pinning down my partner’s taste so I am going to post these to Flickr and see how she comments. If she likes them, I am all set. Otherwise, I might try one more time since I still have 5 weeks before the deadline.
