Last year my favorite quilt that I made was Fire in the Sky It was put on our Etsy Store and while listed there generated 97 favorites and was put into 23 different treasury lists. Originally when I made this quilt I had over made the blocks and had more then I needed in this quilt (4 blocks wide by 5 long). I loved this quilt so much I even created a popular pattern that I sell on Craftsy to make your own.
So the original quilt had 20 blocks in it and I had 12 blocks left over and I had decided way back then that I would one day put those 12 together and make a baby sized quilt out of it. A few weeks ago when we went though all the boxes and did a good clean of the sewing room I found the blocks and I put them on the desk in a pile so that I could make my other quilt. I of course like a good husband let my wife know the plans.
Well a week ago or so I came home from work and Tanya was so pleased with herself and showed me the neat hot pad she had made out of my useless blocks (her words not mine). If you read about the original post you will see the comments about how much she hated my orange blocks. Well it seems that she is now trying to get rid of them one at a time. Being the persistent husband I am I cant' let this go so, while she was at work on Friday night I made this.
Yes that hole in the middle is my hot pad. Thanks Tanya. Any way I still need to add a border around it and find me a back but in a few weeks (or months, my to quilt pile has 5 quilts one of which is a twin size to still quilt,) but you will see this again and yes it will end up on the Etsy Store to replace its older sibling that was snatched away from me. (Yes Tanya its too late I made another one)
