Pot Holder Pass Round 2 -- Sent and Received.

My  Pot HolderPass 2 swap buddy  Teresa  has yet to receive her potholders as a result of  my tardiness and the Ielandic volcano reeking havok, but told me I could post some pictures of them (she wanted to be surprise, but gave in :) ) Teresa I  hope you like them and thank you again for your patience.

 This pattern is called " Honor & Courage"  from The Quilter's Cache/Marcia Hohn.   This pattern was perfect for Teresa's color choices which were red, green & gold.  it just seemed to make the colors pop.  They are all paper pieced which took some practise, trial & error and a bit of cursing.   I also wanted to make a finger pocket potholder as I still manage to burn my hands NO MATTER WHAT and thought it made them a bit more sustantial.  I think this may be my prefered method of  potholder construction in the future. 

The potholders I received were from Bahamadawn with fabric made in the Bahamas which she sent some extra with the potholders.  I love the whimsy of the owl and the yo-yos seem to evoke a smile everytime I walk into my kitchen.


 Thanks again ladies.  A big Thank You to Amy  for putting this all together.  I'll be bowing out of round 3 but will jump back into to more swaps in the future!

Take care,


  1. Oh!Oh !Oh! they look wonderful. I can't wait to get my hands on them. Thanks so much.

  2. What great potholders! You ladies do wonderful work.


I'd love to hear from you.
