My friend whoopdedoo5 let me borrow her Denyse Schmidt Quilts book a bit ago and I've been wanting to make some of the projects in it ever since.  She's got a tutorial for a heating pad cover that I've had my eye on for a while.  I never make things for myself, so I figured this would be perfect.  My heating pad is always out in the open in my living room and it has a heinous 90s-ish geometric pattern on it.  Not anymore!

I didn't use the tutorial ... instead, I ended up doing 2 large wonky log cabin blocks (which I'm currently obsessed with) and sewing them together. I then sewed them to the existing cover (which I'd cut to lie flat) and quilted the pieces together.  Then I sewed it shut and turned it right side out. Easy. Peasy. 

I used the existing cover instead of batting not only in the spirit of reuse/recycle, but also because I didn't know if it was made out of some sort of special material and I didn't want my new cover to start a fire. Wink  Also, it already had a snap closure on it, which saved me the trouble of adding a new closure to the new cover.

Anywho, it's stylin' now.

thanks for looking!
