Really pretty, but looks like more work than I want to do for a potholder (I'm pretty lazy). This one pictured in my avatar is as fancy as I'm going to get. :) Thanks for sharing though. :)

It's really funny you posted this. I just found that potholder on the modabakeshop.com website last night! I read all the way through the instructions and am thinking about giving it a try using Christmas fabrics. It doesn't look too hard, just time consuming with lots of pieces. If I give it a whirl I'll post a pic.

I made ones like that many years ago.They aren't hard, but you're right quilter.martha, they do take a while and there are a lot pieces. i still have one around somewhere. Nice and thick, they make a great hot pad for the table, too.

I have a similar one that one of my Aunts made years ago - she framed her's in an embroidery hoop and it is hanging in my former sewing room. Need to get it down and take a photo. Thanks for sharing.
