My name is Joan from MooseStashQuilting, and I have a fun little project to share with you. I, like many of you, have made and loved those wonderful monthly themed projects. There is nothing better than having a new "quilty" every month to decorate with. So lets step it up a bit, and make something that is not only decorative, but functional and can be used daily. How about a new set of clothes every month for it????
Sound interesting?????? Here you have it. Ceramic tile trivets!!
A plain old "cheap" ceramic tile, in a Velcro closed pocket. Did I mention cheap? How does about 50 cents grab you? Yep, that is the cost of these 6" tiles. A few scraps and some velcro and you have all you need. For this one, a 5" quilt block bordered with a 1 1/2" strip will make it large enough to fit the tile nicely. Those leftover pieces of quilt batting are perfect for this project too. I have batted both the front and back, although it really isn't necessary for the back.
So lets get started:
For Valentines day, I have chosen an applique heart motif. My favorite method, is fusible applique, but if you are a needle turn kind of girl, go for it, there are no rules. :-)
