QAYG Potholder

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Learning the quilt-as-you-go technique! I am now working on the Tinker Tote. And having a lot of fun. Best of all... I found my new sewing machine! My little old Janome has been a workhorse, but there are many features lacking. I love,love,love the Juki that Tara uses in this class. It is straight-stitch, only, fast as lightening, and I am in heaven with the knee-lift presser foot and the automatic thread cutter. Perfect for my needs! :)

What you will need

NanaJeanFL asked:
Just love this! I"m definitely going to have to take this class!!
Di4N4 answered:
Jean, it has been a very good class for me! Tara Rebman also demonstrates QAYG with free-motion. Looks so easy. I wish I had more time to sew! Lol! The potholder loop is a piece of bias tape that I made as a "test" -- (it had been many years since I cut my own bias tape!) I just stitched together one side, then made a loop and added it in when I sewed on the binding. I left it longer than ordinary, and like that it is big-enough to hook over a cabinet knob. -- it is just a coincidence that the black spots meet up with a matching piece in the potholder...
