    Do you have a quilted mouse pad? My sdon did not care for thr $1 paper pad I got at Michaels so I handed him a small block I had experimented on. Now that block is my mouse pad. Tres crafty!

    Here is the tutorial I did for the Quilted Paradise Newsletter.

    http://www.quiltedparadise.com/n/038-oqk.jsp - mouse pad--star point

    and I also did one in my Dresden Kaleidoscope book - this is the one I use.

    I made mine with just one layer of traditional poly batting.
    I don't have any problem with it at all. My mouse works just fine on it.

    Yes, just a quilted square. One layer batting. Works great!

    No, my mouse pad has an appliqued leaf w machine embroidery.
    Try something you have quilted & see if it works for you.
