Here is the striped fabric I used for my potholders (taken indoors with a flash). It looks very different cut up and sewn back together.
I knew I was going to be making potholders but I'd like to make more quilts using this method.
I couldn't resist playing with the blocks before sewing them into potholders. Here is one of my favorite layouts (taken outside in the shade)
I tried about 5 or 6 layouts. Most were variations of the traditional log cabin layouts. Here's another favorite:
Luckily I have enough fabric to make more squares. I don't know if I'll be lucky enough to find another striped fabric this fun. I did buy all they had (2.5 yards) and I have looked for more without any luck. I do have more stripes so I'll probably end up making do with what I have.
