Cotton Theory Trivet

     Clara taught our After-after for us to make a trivet or potholder using the Cotton Theory of Quilting. 
 
 It was a fun time for sewing fellowship. 




     I have seen Betty Cotton demonstrate her techniques several times on “Sewing with Nancy” and have wanted to try it.  Now that I have, I don’t know that I will do any more.  I have a lot of respect for the work that it took for Clara or anyone to make a full size bed quilt using this method.  It takes a tremendous amount of preparation cutting the top and backing fabric pieces as well as the batting pieces.
Here are 2 photos of mine finished. It has 2 good sides.
