After doing all the blocks for the quilt block swap rd5. I got bored LOL
So I took two of the blocks I had and made hot pads for my counter. Each has the silver backed batting (insulated). So as to redirect the heat from my counter into the bottom of the pot. I use my center island in my kitchen a lot for setting out a meal, saves room on my table.
The hex one is the Hex part of the Hexing around block. I didn't really like the white in the center once I was done with it. So I turned it into something else I could use.
The star/pinwheel block was one from round4 that was sent to me in addition to the correct size blocks and I simply loved the texas bluebonnets on it so made it useful as well.
I sewing around the edge leaving room to turn (I should of trimmed the batting at the turn point, but well learn as ya go LOL.
Then I quilted in the ditch around the ringers on the hexing block and around the colors on the star/pinwheel block
thanks for looking
well and wonderment
