Quilt of the Week -- Utility

Not all of my sewing projects are pretty.  Some are simply useful.

Mom loves getting handmade gifts from me.  I'm a mom; I get it, so I oblige.

I grabbed my bucket of strings and pieced up a few potholders since Mom's last ones were getting pretty shabby:

I layered them with old towels (from my wedding shower nearly 30 years ago) and quilted them using my walking foot on my home sewing machine.  I bound them up with some leftover quilt bindings.

Happy cooking, Mom,  Love ya!

Great idea! But, of course, you know that ;->

We'll have to differ on what is pretty and what isn't as I found those potholders pretty -grin. Lucky mom. Good use of old towels, Debby. Thanks for linking to WIPs Be Gone. Now I wonder what you'll show this week?
