In April I’m demonstrating the Lil’ Twister Tool for our quilt guild so I’ve started making some Lil’ Twister pot holders for my demo. Here’s my first finish. The little squares that are leftover have been cut into squares for my PSQ collection, bonus!
I like the finished size, 6 1/2″, for a more usable pot holder. Some of the other pot holders I’ve been making end up so big they are more like table pads. I am using one layer of batting and one layer of Insul-Brite.
Here’s the before and after picture. Start with a 5″ square and add 3″ borders. After cutting and sewing the 10″ becomes a 6 1/2″ square. I was thinking this could be a little starter project for those who what to try the Twister Tool. I’m preparing the table runner size for my demo, too. I’ll post some pictures of that after my guild meeting.
I’m linking up to Such a Sew and Sew: A Stitch in Time March 2012 Finishes but I really hope that I can get a bigger project finished later this month!!
Thanks for looking and just keep stitchin’
