Cute and Colorful Pot Holders For Your Kitchen.
While deciding what to make next to use up good size pieces of scraps, why not make up these cute and colorful churn dash pot holders. They make good use of the tiniest scraps of your beloved fabric.
These churn dash blocks stitch up quick and there’s no boundaries to the mix of prints and colors, except to use a neutral for the background to show up the pretty block. From scraps, you’ll be piecing several together, end to end, to make four 1 1/2″ x 5″ scrappy strips. Pour out your smallest scraps and start stitching. It goes really fast and you’re creating your own fabric!
Construct the block using 2 1/2″ half square triangles together with the same neutral background fabric. Sew the rows together to assemble the block. Then follow Amanda Jean’s tutorial to stitch them into pot holders! Quilt as desired, however, simple straight line quilting looks great.
These blocks are bright and colorful, and make a nice set of new pot holders for the kitchen using Amanda Jeans pot holder tutorial here.
