    hee hee, bet you thought you'd see a full-size fancy-schmancy thing! nope, just a little 'ol potholder i made for our Aunt Esther. needed something quick and easy. i used the ezquilt template for the starter piece and scraps from my mom's jacket for the rest.

    easy-peasy! and fun! now to make a bunch more for dd's five teachers!

    it really wasn't, using that template.

    kind of like paper piecing (hope that doesn't turn you off). you just cut the five-sided center/focal piece then add the pieces around it.

    i found a nice tutorial website that actually showed pictures. i was surprised that ezquilt didn't have a tutorial on their site. i have the site on my other computer. i'll post it in a wee bit.

    That's very pretty. I've seen that tool but wondered what I would do with it. Guess I should think about getting it now. :wink:
