by Mary Wilkins These potholders are fun to make and so quick! The block is made up of 2" squares of two different colours. Then borders (also 2" wide) were put on top and bottom, then the sides. Once your block is made you make a loop of the border fabric. Place this loop in one corner on the right side of the holder. Cut a backing the same size as the block. For batting you can use 3 layers of terry towel. Place your toweling down first, then the quilt block right side up. On top of that in one corner pin your loop, with raw edges even with block. On top of that place your backing right side down. Sew all around outer edge using a 1/4" seam making sure you have caught the loop in your stitching line. Leave opening about 3" wide along one edge to turn. Turn and machine stitch around entire edge, making sure your opening was stitched closed. You can really use your imagination with these and they are pretty as well as useful. Another nice gift or beginner project.
