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!
