Brandon Quilters President’s Challenge

After moving to Mississippi I joined two quilt guilds – I was already a member of the state guild, Mississippi Quilters Association. The president of the Brandon Quilters issued a challenge.  Make a potholder and bring it to the April meeting. She even provided a fat quarter for us to get started out of her stash. I was given the brown with white flowers.  I used it in the center, binding and backing. It just shy of 8″ square.

For this Folding Star, I used the Plum Easy Patterns’ directions. Given how thick the top is I opted to use Insul-Bright instead of batting.

For a while, I thought this might become a UFO.  I was struggling to get the binding ends joined.  It’s normally not an issue for me, but I haven’t bound anything for over a year and I didn’t have much room to work in. It wasn’t until I was joining the binding on the MQA quilt that I could see how to do the join.
