I need a new pair of pot holders. When I made the last pair, I had no access to the internet, so I did the zig zag pattern that I could remember. This time I was able to revisit angelfire's tutorial (via my blog, of course) for doing the block pattern. It took two attempts before I got going, but I have the hang of it now. I'll probably do the second one in zig zag, I like the idea of using different patterns that are connected by colour.
