This is my latest potholder creation (version 4). It's going to be my last practise piece as I'm confident enough with the techniques to move onto something larger. For this potholder I made a 9-patch square ( with 2½" squares ) and a 2"strip surrounding it.
This one I machine quilted with my new walking foot. It looks almost the same as v3 but the quilting is in a different pattern.
