    So here's another attempt. It's kind of messy, but the front of the potholder is very busy so it doesn't show the mess so much. I still have thread tension issues, but I feel like I'm getting the general idea. I can't imagine, though, doing this on anything bigger than a potholder!

    Not bad! Glad to see your practicing on pot holders. One of my favorite ways to learn FMQ.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I think that looks wonderful! I couldn't do something like that. Good job!!! I really like the design a lot.

    I did some practice FMQ on a "plain-ish" potholder and then folded it in half and sewed down the side and across the bottom. Perfect holder for my rotary cutter when traveling or a nice, custom case for my glasses!
