I am totally loving the Patchwork Please trivets.
They are so much fun to make.
I want to try several other things in this fabulous book but not before Christmas.
I have made 5 trivets so far and just finished the last one last night.
I am hoping you want to see. They all look so different!
You have already seen these two but I will re-cap:
This one was for my friend Pauline.
This one was gifted to my friend Robin.
This one was gifted to my friend Judith
This one was super special.
I used the butterfly fabric in the middle and back and binding that I used in the quilt I gifted to my friend Holly when she was going through her radiation treatment.
This is the back of the butterfly one. I love Tamara Kate's fabric!
Someone asked me how I put them together.
I paperpieced the tops and then sandwiched like making a quilt using
Insul-Bright ( heat resistant batting) in the middle and backing then quilted, trimmed and bound them.
Flatter was my friend for nice crisp fabrics and I glue basted the binding and sewed it down on the front by machine. Much easier than hand stitching it down!
I have a few more to make but they have been really fun.
They would make cute mug rugs too using just regular batting.
I take my hubby in to the hospital tomorrow late afternoon for his kidney stone removal.
Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.
I am going to link up the Finish It Up Friday, if I can figure out how to do it with my phone.
I am writing this a day early so hopefully I can figure it out tomorrow!
I leave you with a shot of Autumn trying her best to be a snowman!
Have a great weekend!!
