More Patchwork Potholders

So my plan is to sew things between now and Christmas  that can be given as gifts. I may or may not have anyone in particular in  mind when I am sewing these things - just making multiples of things I love to make.
 
So tonight I finished up a set of potholders. After making the Christmas themed ones, I felt motivated to design some more! Most of these fabrics are from Heather Bailey's Fresh Cut  line - the green is something else.  It's Moda - but I can't remember the line.  Does anyone know?

I made  a quilt from these fabrics several years ago and still have yardage in my stash.  My favorite is the blue floral.  Really love that one!

Overall, I am pleased with how these turned out! And that keeps me motivated to create some more.

I know I can't be the only one getting going on gift sewing. How is yours progressing?

Linking up with Can I Get a Whoop Whoop at Confessions of a Fabric Addict., and Needle and Thread Thursdays at My Quilt Infatuation and Show Off Saturday at Sew Can She.

cute potholders, and great use of those pretty fabrics. I have been madly sewing Christmas gifts myself lately- tablet sleeves, a table runner, and the start of a pillow.

Thank you so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!

Great job. I like to make (and receive) potholders as gifts too!

One can never go wrong with handmade potholders. I too love the fabrics you used in these. There is something about working out your scrap box and making potholders that satisfies that 'make something for nothing' feeling. Thanks for Showing Off this Saturday.

I really love Heather Bailey's fabrics. Your potholders are so posh!
