Marmalade Potholders

Marmalade had to be one of my favorite lines of fabric that came out in 2012.  After making the boy and girl quilts for a set of twins, there were quite a few scraps left over.  I held a giveaway on the blog for a set of potholders to be made out of the winners favorite color way of the quilts.

Darcie, a fellow member of the Indy Modern Quilt Guild, was the winner.  Little did I expect to get so busy with work that I didn’t have time to create a simple set of potholders.  As the scrap organization started, the scraps resurfaced and conveniently it was right before our February meeting.  Time to sew.

Darcie chose this quilt as her favorite.

For the potholders I wanted to mimic the colors I used on the quilt.  Kona celery and ash were added in to coordinate.

She was really happy with the outcome.  Look for more this stye of potholders to be added to the Etsy shop over the coming months.
