Antique Look- Dresden Kitchen Quilts

 While I was at Mom's  we made lots of  Pot Holders , these we copied from a mag. I had gotten at a quilt show for .25 cents ,there was an article about Kitchen Quilts , These here are call Dresden pattern and I used the old fashion look fabric to make them look Antique , I made 12 of these , Mom made about the same of  the flower pattern .
The book below does not show the dresden holder, it is on another page , I forgot to take a picture.
If you look at the book on the top left middle holder the flowers are made with tiny yoyo's ,those will be next .

  Here is a couple flower holders Mom made , she asked me to finish the centers and do the blanket stitching.
 We made most for gifts, but keeping some for ourselves too, after Christmas I will be making more ,I also want to experiment with some of the other old looking ones .
