Orphan Block – Pot Holder

This pot holder tutorial by Sew Can She, actually shows you how to make the block from scratch but we are mixing it up and suggesting that you actually use an Orphan of UFO block to complete this pot holder. Pot holders are quick to make up and are perfect for gift giving. They are a great way to use up Orphan blocks and fabric scraps from your quilting supplies. You can see the tutorial above here.

If you’re an avid quilter surely you’ll have orphan blocks. It doesn’t really matter if you are new, Orphaned blocks will find their way into your life.

Orphan blocks are extra blocks made to test block patterns or blocks that were made for quilts or projects that never got used. With little projects like these, you can turn Quilt Blocks that are just laying around into a functioning item. Maybe you don’t have an orphan block but a 50% UFO set of quilt blocks? Either way, this single block project is perfect for those quilted blocks too.
