Here's the red things I did today. I cut out these big hearts and made hot pads out of them. I still have to bind them but I'm going to use bias binding (the kind you buy in packages) on these instead of making bias binding.
I finished the placemat I made last week. I have decided to make a placemat in all the colors we work on this year for the rainbow challenge so I can have some rainbow placements. I think the grandkids will like these.
I made a little snippets bag, a big zipper bag to hold some of my tatting shuttles and thread, a coaster and 5 heart hotpads. I'm showing the backside of one of these to show you the silver stuff (I don't know what it's called, but it's ironing board fabric.) All of these are finished except for 4 of the hotpads.
I was going to make this bigger snippets bag out of red but I didn't have big enough scraps of red. So, instead of red, I used white fabric that wasn't good enough for a quilting project to make the bag. I don't know where I even got this fabric but it's too heavy for quilting so I decided it would do for this little bag or whatever you call it. This is one of the things I was going to show you this week. I saw one of these at my sewing group last week and decided to see if I could make it. This turned out ok. I used a big equilateral triangle to cut the triangles. I cut 8 triangles out. Put two triangles together and sew them right sides together, repeat for a total of 4 sets. I sewed three of these from the bottom up 5 inches. I then sewed the final triangle on the bottom. Fold down the tops and put a button on each corner to hold them down....In the picture you can see the triangle ruler I used. It is an 8"-60 degree ruler. I still need to sew the buttons on and it will be finished. This one looks pretty plain and will look better with buttons but it will do what I want it to anyway.... The one I saw was cuter with prettier fabric.
I also cut the corner triangles and setting triangles out for my heart quilt but I didn't sew them yet. I'll try to sew those tomorrow afternoon after church. Until next time, happy quilting!
