This past weekend we celebrated our Thanksgiving & I found myself short a large hot-pad so I had to make do with 2 small ones. I decided since I was not able to find a larger hot-pad to purchase I would make one. This is what I came up with & it was quilt as you go style with applique & embroidery all rolled in to one. It has a layer of warm & natural & Insul-bright on top. I am very pleased @ the way that it turned out & I think next time I will make it reversible with a pattern of something on the back too

The face I took from another pumpkin design & then I enlarged it & changed the shading to add the gold colour. The rest I made up myself.

Thanks Gerry but I will put the pad on the table & the hot dish on top of it. It is 15 x14, a good size pad. The insul-bright will keep it warm & that is good too. LOL Hugs & ***

This is adorable. You have a wonderful stash of orange fabric. I still need to collect more. The Jack O'Lantern in the middle is just too cute. Really nice job. I'm not familiar with this technique.

This is so cute. I have a "quilt as you go block" in shades of pink, black and white, just like this and haven't come up with an idea on how to use it. You've inspired me!
