A large patchwork potholder that is both functional and decorative is a wonderful addition to a home kitchen! This one, done in a log cabin quilt style is nice enough to hang as part of your decor, with the nice hanging loop on the back.

On the practical side, this kitchen hot mat can be used when handling fresh from the oven dishes. Made with an extra heat resistant thermal layer you can feel confident you are protecting your hands, counters and tabletops.

In addition this one is an extra large size, measuring just over 10 inches square! The large pot shown in the photo is a 15 qt stock pot, for reference. 

I have another coordinating potholder in the reverse color scheme listed here

Features

I always use quality fabrics and thread. In addition, I am conscientious about making sure I use a full seam allowance. I never leave fabrics holding together by a few threads. This ensures a quality, handmade item, that will withstand normal care and use for many years.

The inner batting layer is usually Pellon or Hobbs 80/20. Occasionally I use a bamboo batting.

Binding is always double thickness and attached by machine for added durability, with neat mitered corners.

The nice thing about quilts is that the more you use them the softer and more snuggly they become. Don’t be afraid to use them wherever you want to be. After all, we wear cotton fabrics everyday in our clothes… your quilt won’t fall apart before it gets well loved!

Care

I have often washed my own quilts in with a regular wash load, with no regrets. However, it is still recommended to use a gentle cycle, mild soap and tumble drying on low heat. (** Note: I rarely prewash my fabrics. Expect a small amount of shrinkage on the first laundering.) It is the tumble drying that achieves the soft crinkly look that we associate with handmade quilts. If you prefer a flatter look, lay flat to air dry… do not dry in the dryer. 

Remember that sunlight will fade any fabric, and your quilt is no exception.  So; have a care when you leave it outside frequently or in a sunny window.

Packaging & Shipping

I package all my items responsibly, first with a care for your purchase and then with a desire to reuse and recycle any shipping material I have around.
