    Dresden Kaleidscope Hotpads by Rhonda

    Here are the hotpads I have been working on in the last couple of days. They are my Dresden Kaleidoscopes turned into Hotpads.

    A couple of them are a bit wonky but oh well!
    The black and red one is chili peppers tomatoes potatoes and I'm not sure what the green is.
    The first one and the last one are from the same fabric.

    I wouldn't let a messy pot near those beautiful hot pads. Those would be my "show" hot pads on the hooks by my stove.

    Thanks everyone. They are already in the mail to the receivers. No I personally wouldn't use them either. I view most things I make as a picture. Checkbook covers and keychains I use but hotpads I have never kept one in almost 15 years of making them. I use to sell them to a local gift store and made about 900 of them over 12 years pieced mostly but some Dresden Kaleidoscopes and Crazy quilt ones and a few applique over those years.

    IF you look up at the right hand corner you will see in the rotation my EBook on Dresden Kaleidoscopes. It was the third ebook I wrote and released here on the board in 2009. This is NOT a sales pitch just a comment to show how long I have been doing these.

    Right now it is showing my Wings Blocks on my page anyway. It is under advanced search if you want to see more of my kaleidoscopes.

    I also have 2 threads on here where I posted some of my Dresden Kaleidoscopes a long time ago.
    Pansy K's - http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...-t18738-6.html

    More Dresden Kaleidoscopes- http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...-t18219-3.html
    In this one on the second page you will see a brief explanation. I have to be careful how much I give away because of the Ebook.

    They are turned right side out through the center hole. It does distort the center a bit but it all lays back down and is covered by the center flat yoyo.
