Use the background as a frame and move it around the fabric until you get it placed over the fabric piece you want to feature. Be sure to keep the  1/4″ seam allowance in mind.  Use a water soluble marker or a pencil to trace around the inside of the frame. Cut with scissors or place a clear ruler on the lines and rotary cut.

Add scrappy strips to complete the potholder. While sewing totally scrappy, test strips against the center piece to accent the colors and enhance the design. The potholder finishes at approximate 9″ using two rounds of 2″ fabric strips, so there’s a lot of choice to put on display.
