Ringing in a New Year

Now that the holidays are behind me, it is time to start work on Valentine's Day.  First order of business, hot pads!  What is nice about these is that no two are alike...what fun.  The crazy quilt background is assembled in the same way as the crazy quilt vest which was featured in an earlier blog. Then a somewhat askewed heart is appliqued on top. This hot pad design (pictured) was my first entrance into the wonderful world of the crazy quilt block several years ago.  I have used this block in baby quilts, aprons, quilt borders and the pillow on my website.  Not only are these fun to make but they are a wonderful way to say you care this time of year and also at Mother's Day.   


THANK YOU!  Glad you like it.
