If making a whole quilt seems intimidating, then why not start out small! These quilted pot holders and matching kitchen towels are easy to make and look pretty great.
Pick out some nice fabric that you could see would go well together, three different kinds is enough for this project. The secret with making these pot holders look well made is to take your time with each step and to iron often to keep the seams nice.
Since I hate when the heat goes right through pot holders, I made sure to double up on the heat resistant batting. These are nice to make for your own kitchen, or give away as gifts!
