Okay, I admit I've had a bit of an obsession with hotpads, however, I can explain....

I bought a magazine that had paper pieced vegetable hotpads. I have a box still of batting scraps that needs used up and recycled, so hotpads are the perfect project to do this. Additionally, with the added challenge of paper piecing, I jumped at the chance to make these. I used the same background fabric to unite the collection of vegetables and then used my scap bag for the various vegetables. I then took the paper pieced vegetables to my favorite store, Bernina,to find a fabric that would bring them together as a group. I bought a dishtowel for the back and yesterday I finished them up. I would rate this project 4/5 for fun, challenge and able to complete.

I LOVE them! Those are just adorable. They could really make a cute wall hanging or lap quilt too. I can't wait to have you teach me how to do these!
