I should be ashamed to show you this, and I probably would if I hadn't improved . . . a lot.
This is a potholder I made a few years ago when I was trying to learn how to quilt with a meandering/stipple stitch.
Oh. My. Gosh. Have you ever seen a sorrier result, even as a first attempt?
And, of course, the flip side isn't any better!
The big question is: Why haven't I destroyed this? Burned it. Buried it in the garden. Let the dog tear it to pieces.
Well, I guess it is an excellent example of a bad job. :o)
