Project #7: Quilted Potholder

I was pretty excited for this project because sometimes I just love simple, domestic decorations. And they also remind me of my grandmother's house.

I used 1/4 of a cloth napkin I got from a thrift store for the front, and some thrifted red cotton for the back. My quilting started out pretty wonky, but got better as I continued. After I finished the quilting, I decided I wasn't crazy about the edges (sometimes I'm a little picky), so finished it off with some vintage red bias tape from my grandma. The white thread I used was well-hidden on the front print and complemented the red backing quite nicely.

End product:

LOVE IT! I want to make so many of these for people!
