Christmas Potholder Time...

The mail came yesterday at 4:30 with the orange fabric...a Christmas potholder in the making (for some unsuspecting person on my gift list...!)...and in 7 minutes the front was made. (Quilting happened later...before some baking...)


The back is a reject block from the scrap bin (rejected because the turquoise seemed offensive...kind of like it now though?) with some orange lights added...



One hour total, start to finish, exclusive of the quilting...



Thanks V for some Christmas fun!!!
