More Kitchen Quilts


Another set of kitchen quilts: Little Aster (upper left) and Bow Tie (lower right) made from orphaned quilt blocks, one paper pieced crazy patch, and one courthouse steps pattern.  Two of these have a product called Insul-Bright and a layer of cotton batting inside, making them suitable for use as a potholder.  The Insul-Bright is a needled insulated lining recommended for hot pads, oven mitts, tea cozies, etc.  These are a cute addition to a country table.

  4. Oh these are so pretty. What a great idea. The designs and colors are real cheery and fun.
    Thanks for talking about the Insul-Bright. I wondered what to use to make a mitt or potholder more heat safe. I'm going to go and look for some of that right now. I would love to make some for my kitchen.
    Thanks s much. Wishing you a wonderful week. :)

  5. My daughter gave the Insul-Bright to me; I think I remember seeing it in the fabric department at Wal Mart.

    Linda I gave two away this morning.

  6. I love these! You do such a beautiful job! Do you ever sell your quilting? Do you have an Etsy? You would do well if you did! These are charming!

  7. Love your bright and cheerful little table toppers. I have yet to try to use the special batting for heat. I see some fancy stitches, on one of them. :) Very nice.

  9. It would be hard to choose a favorite...leaning toward the crazy patch (Did you give it away?). I also think you would do well with a shop.

  10. Awe, these are so pretty. You come up with some awesome ideas.. I'll have to try those when I get my sewing machine back from the doctor.lol. It was acting upon me and has needed a tune up for a while. I usually tune it myself but this time it was a no go. You take care, Susie xo
