Scrappy Christmas Potholder

red green white retro scrappy Christmas potholder Dear Mr Claus

My grandmother asked for a decorative potholder to go along with her Christmas quilt -- she loves to hang them up on display in her kitchen even though she really doesn't cook anymore. I used leftover scraps from her Vintage Holiday lap quilt and sewed it up quickly this morning before my parents left to go visit with her.


Nothing fancy going on here. Just scraps sewn together in rows and quilted on either side.


I used one of the Merry Christmas prints for the back. The retro style of this collection is just too cute.


Between the potholder and the quilt, I think Grandma is more ready for Christmas than I am at the moment!

Linking up to TGIFF and Finish It Up Friday.
