I have a hot pad I made about way back in 2004 or somewhere back. I am now making hot pads for our chili Cook-Off in March 2014. I found yours very nice. I like you idea also. Joanie

Many thanks for your kind remarks. How many hot pads do you have to make for the Cook Off?

12/14/2013 Flag

I have 30 to do. The Chili Cook -- Off is at the end of March. It is at O'Leno State Park in High Springs.

You should have no problem getting them done by the end of March. They real did not take much time. Even if you do one a day you will have lots of time. Good luck. I wish I could be there.

Thanks for your positive input. Believe it or not I am still sampling with my trail and error one. I will send you a picture with the finish sampler results. I am so Miss perfectionist, I even drive myself crazy. HA, HA. I am sure we all are like that. Anyway, I will start back today. Christmas stopped my work for the last week. Joanie

I used to be just like you. There is one thing to remember about quilting (or any other craft), we do it for fun not perfection. If you are not having fun, you are doing it wrong. Enjoy, I look forward to seeing your picture.

I love quick and easy projects. Your pot holders are a great idea. No one ever has too many of them and they wear out just in time for new replacements.

I agree with all your comments and will add that these make good use of some of the many scraps we all have.

I love your fabric choices and the quarter square triangles. I'll have to try that. I've been enjoying making hot pads from scraps.

Many thanks. This is a great way to make hot pads. I watched a video on the Riley Blake website. It is not done with quarter square triangles.
