Friendsgiving Potholders

Last week we attended a Thanksgiving feast for friends, aka Friendsgiving.  I whipped up some potholders as a gift for the hosts in case they needed extras to use during the meal.

Our hosts were so well prepared that they didn't need any potholders!  They had heating dishes waiting to be filled with the sides that everyone brought.  I was thoroughly impressed!  The meal turned out to be spectacular and we had a great time.

I used the potholder pattern in Modern Log Cabin Quilting and fabric from Lotta Jansdotter's new line Echo.  I ended up ordering a fat quarter bundle from Fat Quarter Shop because I wasn't sure which fabrics I wanted to use.  Now I have a bunch of extra fat quarters that I can use for another project!

I also embroidered "Friendsgiving 2011" on the back of the potholders so they weren't just a random pair of potholders.

Since the fabric was so pretty I just wrapped the potholders in some raffia.  Isn't raffia the greatest?

  1. Thanks Ginger! Now I get to decide what I want to use the extra fabric on. Any suggestions?
