Halloween Pot Holders

I had much grander plans for the Halloween sewing this year, but alas, with work, the new Quiltcon Submission deadline and life, this is the only Halloween Sewing that happened!

All three are Foundation Paper Piecing patterns. Two are my own patterns that can be found in my etsy shop.

The Bat Block and the Ghost Block are my own patterns.

The Spiderweb is a lovely pattern by During Quiet Play and it’s for sale in her etsy shop.


I usually use Insul-bright for pot holders, but this time I didn’t have any. Instead, I used a quilted heat resistant fabric from Joann’s instead because it’s what I had. I also usually use one piece of heat resistance fabric and one piece of plain batting. My husband always complains that his hands get hot, so I went with two pieces of the insulated this time. Seems to help.


For the spiderweb, I quilted the spider web! This one was really easy to piece and quilt. It’s probably even easier with non-directional fabric! ha!


The bat and ghost I just quilted with wavy lines. I was a bit harder to quilt through all the layers, but my machine made it through!


For the backs, I used all the leftovers from the front! Through them together improv style and I really like the combo of the precise paper pieceing on the front and the improv on the back.

I also like to had a hanger, like I did on the last ones I made. This time I decided not to add the hanger so that they can also be hot pads.


Did you get all your Halloween sewing done this year????
