Potholder Pass Sent

These are the potholders I made for the Potholder Pass swap.  My partner, or rather her boyfriend, requested less “girly” potholders.  The theme for this swap was “spring,” and everything springy that I thought of had to do with flowers.  So, I just went with her favorite colors (aqua and gray), and added this yellow print simply because I liked the color combination.  The colors in the photos are a little off—nighttime photography.

I added some hand stitching as an accent, but the insul-bright is way too thick for actual hand-quilting, so it’s just for looks.  I used an angular pattern for the real quilting in the middle, and I think it goes nicely with the wonky stripe design in the middle.  Overall I’m quite happy with them.  I even made an extra set for myself.  Unfortunately, I haven’t sewed them up yet!

Since I’m writing this post so late, my partner has already received them, and her boyfriend was really happy about the more masculine potholders!
