potholder v 2.0

I decided to have another go making a pot holder since the first one turned out so wonky. Instead of the stitch-right-sides-together-and-turn-out method, I tried just quilting the pieces together right way out and making some binding to go around the edges - much better!



Plus you can use the bias to make a hanging loop. Although I did like the Japanese linen tape used in the last one!
