String Leaf Potholders

These are the potholders that I made for my partner for Potholder Pass 3. I was inspired by the leaf mini quilt on the cover of Whip Up Mini Quilts. I paper pieced each half of the leaf as I would a string quilt and then stitched up the center, turned the edges and appliqued. And yes, I jumped onto the grommet bandwagon! (and no, that isn't my house--we have a run down barn that hasn't been fixed up yet and I think it makes for a neat background!)
