I think obsession in any form it takes can be detrimental so I guess I just answered my own question. I’m addicted to making potholders. For now the addiction is not disrupting my life so I shall ride this wave. I’m hoping with each one I make I will get better. Buying a walking foot for my machine turned out to be a good move. Its a necessity for sewing through all the layers of fabric. With my regular foot this stuff would not move. So far I’ve only made two and both are for my mom. The next few I make will be for me. So here is the newest one.
I need to get a little better at closing the hole through which you turn it right side out after sewing. If you look at the top near the loop you can see where its a bit wonky.
The quilting was just done in a simple square pattern. The squares are by no means equal. I suppose I could have measured and drawn them on equal before quilting, but then how special would that have been ha ha ha. Next time I quilt I will look into drawing the pattern before quilting since the goal is to get better at this stuff. Making these potholders was really fun and really fast. Here is the final set of two.
I got the pattern from this website. Craftzine
