Martina's Pot-Holders

Rremember Martina Odenthal of Cologne, Germany? She made these pretty pot-holders. It seems to be her trademark to add a bit of tape measure/ruler fabric to her selvage creations. Very nice, Martina! "Trademark" is a little pun since she is a lawyer too.

Isn't that great apple fabric on the back? Red delicious with water droplets. Very kitchen-appropriate. I think selvage pot-holders make a nice Christmas gift for quilting friends. I'd better get on the stick!

I just wanted to say thanks for all the selvage pictures and inspirations from all around. I'm building a stash as I work and thinking of writing on my pieces to make it a memory project somehow. Still working it out, thanks!
