TGIFF - A Quick Finish

What does one do on a Friday night?  When there are many other projects that need attention?  Start a new project, of course.  😊

I saw a sample at my LQS earlier this week -- a trivet for hot dishes.  I was intrigued by the striped effect, so decided I needed to give it a try.

It didn't take long to piece together.  I used Insulbrite batting (at least, that's what I think it was) from my stash.

I wish there was something delicious in that  dish...guess I need to buy groceries and make something. LOL

The lines in one of the triangles does not line up precisely with the others, but it's hard to tell.  I had to cut the fabric lengthwise, so I have six more triangles to make a second trivet.

I'm linking up with:

  1. A neat effect and lining up those stripes takes a little bit of patience. Well done!

  2. Perfect, and I don't see the misaligned one. Don't be so critical, it is perfect.

  3. This is really cool! If you hadn't mentioned the misaligned lines, no one would notice. :-)

  4. Yes! A quick finish for the win! That fabric, with its tiny stripes, would be impossible to line up perfectly. But it doesn't matter here because there will be a hot dish sitting on top of it! : )

    Any advice on using Insulbrite? I have a bit that I was going to transform into some coasters.

  5. Beautiful and Utterly useful. Love everything about it!!!

  6. How cute is that!!! and what a great idea!!!
