Thanks for your positive input. Believe it or not I am still sampling with my trail and error one. I will send you a picture with the finish sampler results. I am so Miss perfectionist, I even drive myself crazy. HA, HA. I am sure we all are like that. Anyway, I will start back today. Christmas stopped my work for the last week. Joanie

I used to be just like you. There is one thing to remember about quilting (or any other craft), we do it for fun not perfection. If you are not having fun, you are doing it wrong. Enjoy, I look forward to seeing your picture.

I love quick and easy projects. Your pot holders are a great idea. No one ever has too many of them and they wear out just in time for new replacements.

I agree with all your comments and will add that these make good use of some of the many scraps we all have.

I love your fabric choices and the quarter square triangles. I'll have to try that. I've been enjoying making hot pads from scraps.

Many thanks. This is a great way to make hot pads. I watched a video on the Riley Blake website. It is not done with quarter square triangles.

I know how I'm busting through my stash of fabric soon, I will have a ton of hot pads to give at Christmas :-) Yay :-) This is wonderful, thank you :-)

You are welcome. Go for it. This is a great gift.

What is the size of your fabric? Is there a pattern somewhere? I went to the Riley Blake website but couldn't find a video or pattern instructions. Please help. I really need some new potholders and I love the look of these.

The pattern calls for 5 8.5" squares, but it seems to me I used 10" squares. I have sent an email to the pattern designer about the availability of the pattern and will get back to you when I hear.
