My first potholder entailed two 'firsts' for me:
- My first quilt block (thank-you to Oh Fransson for her wonderful tutorial on wonky cross blocks)
- My first use of binding tape (thanks to the terrific step-by-step at smashed peas and carrots
These ladies make it look so easy! I wanted to try my hand at a quilt block, so I tackled a few wonky cross blocks. When I finished, I wasn't quite sure what to do with them, so I decided to make one into a potholder. It's pretty tricky sewing through all those layers while keeping them lined up. Mine turned out a bit...well, wonky.
