Potholder #1 Coming Along

I've been working on the potholder today, which didn't take as long as i thought it would.

I didn't want to the traditional applique look, instead i sewed just inside the design about 3 times around all the pieces and i used my free motion foot to achieve the look i was going for....

So what do you think?.....i layered  the front with regular white natural cotton batting and solid white cotton fabric on the back. Now don't freak out....i'm not done with the potholder still needs insulated batting...i just didn't want the batting to start coming apart in the sewing machine and adding all that cotton fuzz in the bobbin area

Here's what the complete reverse looks like, but you will not be able to see it when i'm done.

This is the completed front...i love the outlining ALOT!
At this point I have added a layer of insulated batting and the backing

A look at the back

All I need to do now is add the binding and a loop or something for hanging.

Hi Claire, I am a fellow Potholder Pass participant and I love your potholder. It's a shame all that cute stitching is hidden inside. I see you've done the potholder pass before so I am going to look around your blog! Happy sewing!
