3. Lay the loop on the backside of your potholder and either use your sewing machine or handstitch the loop onto the block.

4. Around the outer edge of the off white colored block, sew a line 0.7 cm from the sewn border all around the block. This will hold all 3 layers together and give the potholder a quilted look.

6. Also using a zig-zag stitch, sew now around the red strawberries. You may also choose to hand stitch the motifs instead. This will give your potholder a more country look to it.
