08 Nov Not quite ready for hot pads
Posted at 14:18h in Uncategorized 0 Comments
I had planned to do a post/tutorial either yesterday or today on the holiday hot pad. It seemed pretty simple. I already have all the directions written out. All I needed to do was a little sewing, take a few pictures and… done!
But, naturally, I had to complicate things. The hot pad I showed earlier was made of one fabric. I decided that was a little dull and wanted to put a tree on the version for the tutorial. Just a simple tall, skinny evergreen. Quite some time, and many triangles later, I was no closer to a tree pattern. Now, in my own defense, I have never made a quilt with isosceles triangles using a pattern written by someone else, much less designed my own.
With my recent post on applique in the back of my mind, I decided to applique the tree instead. So much faster and simpler! Now, I can get things back on track.
Unfortunately, today is filled with non-sewing commitments. I hope to have the post up Tuesday or Wednesday.
