Handmade Potholders from the Flower City Pattern Testers

As always, pattern testers are amazing! They really help clarify instructions and perfect the pattern. The Flower City Potholders pattern is better because of their hard work and ideas. 

They have some great creative twists, with patchwork and paper pieced sections. I hope they inspire you to try the potholders and add your own creative ideas!

Here are a few Flower City Potholders made by my testers:

This beautiful set was made by Colleen. Her quilting lines are perfect! You can see her other sewing projects @skootchover on Instagram.

Margareth made her square potholders with some beautiful paper pieced designs from Lori Holt’s Farm Girl Vintage quilt book. (that’s an affiliate link) And then she used some hexie flowers from her unfinished project pile to embellish the double-pocket potholder, which you can see @maggiemadebags on Instagram.

Kristin made a lovely set of coordinating potholders and oven mitt. I love the autumn tones and contrast binding she chose. She also took a great side photo of the oven mitt so you can see the thumb joint. You can see more of her pretty sewing projects @watersidehearth on Instagram.
