Modern Quilting Potholder Swap-Quilty Pleasures

Last week at the Chicken River Modern Quilt Guild meeting, we had a potholder swap and I seriously scored!

Lin is a member of the guild and also the quilting teacher at our local community college and she knows her stuff!

She found the pattern for this block on a Moda website somewhere and I haven't been able to find it.

If I do, I will let you know.

Look at the neato quilting. I like how she followed the lines for the plants in the vase and made some swirls around the flowers.

I had trouble with the binding on my potholder but Lin didn't. It looks like she sewed the binding to the top, turned it to the back and then used a big zigzag to hold the binding in place.

It's too cute to use, so I will hang it in the sewing room for inspiration.


  1. It is definitely too cute to use. You did luck out.

  2. I love it! I like the zigzag finish on the binding... will have to try that. And her free-motion quilting really sets the fabrics off... could pass for a mini wall hanging!


I love your comments! What's on your mind?
