We are going to do a little free motion quilting.
Zentangle doodling and free motion quilting seems to go hand in hand!
What better way to experiment with doodling with my sewing machine needle than on a back of a potholder.
I used one layer Insul-Bright for the front of my potholder and 2 layers of 100% cotton batting for the back.
They were quilted separately without a backing fabric like you would a quilt and bound with homemade bias tape with the wrong sides (batting sides) together.
This way there are three layers of batting, the top, and the back.
If I run out of Insul-Bright, I have used two layers of 100% cotton batting for the top of the potholder.
Insul-Bright cannot be doubled because there is a problem with needle breakage.
I have not had any problems FMQ without a backing fabric.
The best things about potholders are they wear out quickly and they do not have to be perfect :)
Thank you Pat for the pattern!
