Quilted Kitchen Linens

My mother-in-law has a beautiful kitchen. Her colors are watery greens and blues of sea glass from her backsplash to her countertops. When we visit she always has hot dishes of food spread out on the countertops on various hot mats and pot holders so I thought it would be nice if she had pieces to protect her countertops that matched her kitchen when she entertained her friends.

I used insulbright for the heat pads. It isn’t heat resistant but it is heat reflective and will provide protection from hot dishes on the counter and tabletops.

For the pot holders I used therma-flec which also comes quilted and in tan.

Designer hot pad and oven mitts are expensive. Doing them yourself is fun and you can customize them to suit your own kitchen decor and change them seasonally. You do not need a pattern. You can make them any size you want or need. Your imagination is your only limit.

    These are lovely! I think I might make something similar as my next project. I know zero about quilting though.

  • Arielle says:

    Love the idea of the potholders— I always need more especially now that the boys are cooking in the kitchen.

    Stopped by to say Hello– miss you on BYC!! Glad all is well. Making lot of homemade yogurts these days as well.

Helping Hands
Thank you for your generous donations to the rescue fund for Jack and Diana. Both of these wonderful Percheron horses were saved from the kill pens of slaughter auctions.

Jack is recovering from a severe leg injury and has many more months to go before his wounds are healed.

Diana could barely walk on her broken hooves. With extensive and expensive farrier work she is now standing tall and without pain.

She has at least a year ahead of her before her broken hooves will grow out to become healthy new feet to stand on. Her treatment will require ongoing farrier work expected to total into the thousands of dollars.

Jack and Diana both need a few hundred pounds on their bodies to be back in good health.

Through your generous donations and support Jack and Diana can expect a full return to their good health and sound footing.


My daughter's senior trip donation fund is now open. Thank you for contributing to her trip to visit England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Donation accepted through paypal.
