    I was trying to do my dresden plate block and i kinda messed it up. So I undid the threads and tried to redo it, when I tore my background white fabric. So I made it into a place mat or it could be used to stick a flower vase on or something.

    I make something similar and sell it as a trivet. You know you use it to set dishes on at the table. You can also use it under a lamp. I love dresdens and friendship circles. Yours is very pretty. :D

    Looks good Henry. A trivet is like a potholder but you just place hot foods on it.

    The trivets my mom and grandma had were usually made out of wood or metal and they are decorative and flat. You use them to set hot dishes on when you set food on the table. My mom tends to use hot pads any more instead of a trivet.
    We even made one out of popsicle sticks in Bible School when I was a kid.
    When I made my first kaleidoscopes for hotpads I thought they were too big for a hot pad so I decided to call them trivets. My daughter borrowed my kaleidoscope trivets for a dinner she gave one time. They just add a touch of color to your dinner table like for Thanksgiving or just your hubby and you. And they protect your table from hot dishes.

    Henry ... You did a nice job saving this. How fun the fabrics are ... I never would have thought they would go together so well. I just love it when you can save mistakes into something useful. Good Job!

    Nice save! I like it, would look pretty with a tall glass vase with flowers on it. Or a thick pillar type candle maybe?
