Christmas potholders, made mostly from stash. I am new to FMQ and wanted a simple project. I found this panelled quilting fabric in the 1/meter bin and I decided that would be the perfect project. The backing fabric has been in my stash for a long time, I used up all of my batting scraps. I have finished 3 of them completely now and working on another five. I spray basted them and folded the back over to the front as a binding.




I think I will keep a few of them for myself and then give a set to my friend, mother and grandmother.

This is just regular batting. I have always used regular batting and fabrics for potholders and oven mitts and it's never been a problem.

They turned out lovely!  What nice gifts as well!  I love that you used up those bits of batting....I have also used regular batting for pot holders and pads to sit my hot casseroles on...but I don't have any holiday ones...

They came out great! I always see panels at the fabric store, but never really know what to do with them, but now I do! I love that you used them as a way to practice free-motion quilting, but still ended up with a lovely end result!
