About

Making Quilts Accessible

Why should we reach for grungy, crusty old potholders when the moment comes to pull a delicious pie from the oven? That moment of accomplishment deserves to be honored with something beautiful.

Quilts tend to scare people. They are often heirlooms that have been passed down through generations, lovingly tucked away in cedar chests and sheltered from all harm.

As a quilter, it makes me kind of sad to think that someone would tuck away my projects from the light of day. So much work went into it that I hope it will be looked at and used every day.

As I work, back bent over my sewing machine and face red from a steaming iron, my greatest hope is that my work will be loved on a daily basis and used again and again.

My current work blooms from the notion that tiny, potholder quilts are not so scary. They have a functional purpose that just begs you to use them.

    I love making beautiful and functional items with lovely materials. Sewing and quilting have been giving me joy since I was just a kid enrolled in 4-H. My little Etsy shop is the perfect way to share my passion with others who value handmade.

Welcome to MJ Originals! My goal is to provide you with fun and functional potholders for every occasion.

Each potholder is lovingly handcrafted as part of my 365 Day Creativity Project. Get more information about the project and the creation of each potholder here: www.moreaboutmj.com/mjcollection

Each potholder is made out of very high quality materials. Sandwiched between the outer layers are two layers of insulation to protect your hands - one is 100% cotton batting and the other is Insul-bright, which is a special heat resistant batting just for potholders.

If you need to wash your potholders, I suggest washing them by hand in cool water and laying flat to dry (you can easily do this when you hand wash dishes). Iron if needed.
