Hexie potholder #2!

It's time to show you the second potholder!

(Linking up today with the NEWFO party over at Catpatches....hoping that it's OK to finish a new project!!)

I like the way this one turned out . . . after I put the layers together on this one, I did a blanket stitch around the blue hexies on the top layer. I went all the way around and then after I clipped the threads, I cut away the batting and the backing fabric.


See the stitches on the edge?  I quilted it differently than the other one:


This one has a "Moda" loop, too:



And here is the obligatory shot of the reverse, so y'all can critique my quilting. (Grin)


I like it! And I hope that the recipient will, too!


Hope if you make a hexie potholder, you will show us yours!

Love,
