This post is part of the Festival of Half Square Triangles.
Hello! Welcome to my stop on the Festival of Half-Square Triangles hosted by Megan of Canoe Ridge Creations! If you're new here, welcome! I hope you'll take a peek around, be sure to check out my tutorials section and HST Block of the Month!
Patchwork Chevron Quilt earlier this year, I've been playing around with adding patchwork to half-square triangles in other ways! We'll start with simple nine-patch blocks to make these fun pot holders! Materials and instructions will make two 7.5" potholders!
I always make my pot holders with a layer of quilt batting (I use Warm & Natural/White), and a layer of Insul-Bright (which is heat resistant). I used Miscellany by Julia Rothman for Cloud 9 Fabrics, Quilter's Linen in Beige by Robert Kaufman for the background, and Annie's Farm Stand by Lakehouse Dry Goods for the binding. I quilted them with Aurifil #2325 cotton thread.

This would be a great project to use up scraps! Including those pesky weird shaped batting pieces you end up with after a large project! :)
*Note: You are cutting along the bias, so if you're nervous about stretching, I'd recommend using a little starch! I use Best Press!
