When it's too hot to hand quilt a big quilt I work on smaller things.
I made a couple of gift sets that include a hot pad, embroidered towel and crocheted dish cloth.
I like to have a box of things ready for Christmas gifts and stocking stuffers.
Another view with the other side of the hot pads.
I use Insulbrite in the hotpads along with some scraps of cotton flannel or old towel.
