If you cook, these are pot holders; if you don’t cook, they are kitchen quilts.
A pinwheel quilt block is made from four rectangle squares. make two different pot holders with plain backs, or use one of the potholders for the front and one for the back.
The segments in each of the blocks are made the same, but the sewing steps are different.
Sewer/Weaver Invented The Computer….
In 18th century France, Joseph-Marie Jacquard invented the first automatic loom which used punch cards to create complex, precise patterns in fabric. Many people regard this invention as the first great step toward the development of computer technology….Leah Dicker.

Show ‘N Tell….
I have always wanted to make a Grandmothers Flower Garden but I had no idea what I was in for. I cut 2 1/2″ hexagons, sewed them all by hand, then hand quilted my quilt. The only part I used the machine on was the binding. This was a job for sure. I love how it come out and it fits my queen size bed perfectly. But never again lol. I hope you like it….Donna

Button Button! Which Side The Button?
To help you remember which side to put the buttonholes, recite this old (and politacally incorrect) phrase:
“Women are always right and men are left over!” lol
