Trivet time

These blocks turned out too big to be a hot pad/potholder so I went with a trivet. :) I used 3 batting layers, regular, Insulbrite and regular. I quilted each block individually to a layer of regular batting, then quilted the Insulbrite to the back of the scrappy block. I put them right sides together, sewed the sides, leaving a gap for turning. Turned, pressed, topstitched to close the hole. Then did a little more quilting to secure the layers together.

This is a scrappy block using the scraps from the heart block. I made HSTs at the same time as sewing the corners on the heart. Then used some of them here.
