scrappy paper-pieced hotpad? I purchased the kit a long while back and it sat in the UFO pile. Paper piecing is new to me and I don't understand the directions. Any help would be wonderful. Thanks

Thanks for reminding me Grace -- that's another UFO I need to dig out and finish.

I've seen these being made. They can be as random or as fussy as one likes. The process is simple and meditative. The results are gorgeous.

It is an easy process, I just don't care to do much of it at one time. LOL!

Most of mine I did while sitting the car on long trips.

Yup -- in the car you are a captive audience. That's why I like to sew up at our trailer. No tv, or any other distractions. I can get a lot done up there.

Judith, on our last camping trip (2019) I brought my feather weight,, and worked on strips for a quilt,, it was nice to sit outside at the picnic table, my stuff spread out everywhere,,, and I could watch the boaters floating down the river as I sewed.. oh sigh, wish I could be camping right now...

We only have electric at the trailer unless we turn on the generator on so I keep my 1930 Jones hand crank up there. We usually only turn the generator on to charger the batteries if there isn't enough sun for the solar. Sometimes I can talk DH into turning it on so I can iron. I did buy a butane iron but I can't turn it down enough to keep from scorching everything. I love sewing up there.

The hot pad is a dresden plate pattern and the directions say paper piecing. Grace, I'll check pinterest for this type and give it a go :)
Thanks.
