Finished with the Potholders Craze (I hope)

Well, the orange set of potholders have been bound. I really like how these turned out. I used 16  5" charm squares plus some white and green to make this set.

 Here is the second set completely finished. I used the alternate colorway of the charm square package. I only have bits and pieces left, not even worth putting into the scrap bins.
I bought a little extra yardage and made two butterfly potholders to match the regular ones. These work great when pulling something hot out of the oven!
 And how about a casserole holder? It is so cute!
 Here it is with a 9x13 baking dish; it is just the right size!
The blue/olive/magenta set is a wedding shower gift that is coming up soon! Hope the bride likes them!

Now I can get back to some UFO busting!

Well done!

Did you use heat resistant lining inside or on the back of the pot holders? How about a tutorial? Pretty please?

Cheers!

Those are great! I love the way they're all so different but still go together as a set.
