I didn't want this to be really long so I decided to break the tutorial down into two parts. This is part one. :)
When I started making pot holders for my business I couldn't quite figure out how I wanted to make them. I finally decided that since I love to quilt I would make them like little quilts.
Some of the one's I make I just fussy cut the picture from the fabric. Usually the center is cut in a 6 inch square. When completed this will give you an approximately 8 inch pot holder.
Next cut four 2 1/2 by 2 1/2 blocks. These will go on the ends of the 6 inch strips.
Now sew the strips with the blocks on them to the middle section. This will give you the finished top of the pot holders.
