friday finish - for the kitchen


In need of some new hot pads, I put together a little set for the kitchen.
Blue and green makes the kitchen look ready for spring...


This is my second set ever made, so it was about time. There's two hot pads (right) and to table-runners of different size. I used my 4" finish hst die set for my Go!Baby cutter. I think it is a nice size block.



I used Warm and Natural cotton batting. The hot pads are big, so I fold them over when I use them. This model (12" square) has been tested out for some time. I like it, so I'll stick to it. Even if my friend made fun of how big they were. She will probably never ever be gifted any hot pads from me, silly girl - don't you think?



I had some lovely fabric in my stash, just waiting to be used for the kitchen. So I made another set, in red... 





A pair of hot pads sounds like a small order.... I guess there's no such thing. 

Now my kitchen looks fresh, and I'm happy.

Wish you all a great weekend!

What a great idea, especially so see completed results more quickly than a full quilt. Very cheery.

Looks like a great way to stop people dumping the post in the kitchen and filling the worktop with rubbish ;-) I would love some of these in my kitchen.
