Home Ec - Quilted Potholder

I'm pretty happy with the end result of this quilted potholder, but again, my biggest challenge so far is keeping the fabric from shifting when I sew. I saw some other people in the Flickr group run into the same issue with theirs too, but then others still had really nice looking ones.

The edges of the potholder would've looked all wonky due to the shifting fabric if I hadn't put the binding around the edges. Sewing the binding on was actually pretty easy except for the last bit where the ends overlap. That took a bit of work to make it look not crappy. Also, next time, I probably wouldn't use a pattern where you could easily tell that the pattern doesn't line up.
