Small finish for October and 15th for 2013

I had this block sitting in my pile of block to make something with when I saw a photo of a heat pad that a friend had made and I then knew what this lone little block needed to be made into. I originally cut the background  shape for a table runner but somehow cut this one the wrong size so I put it aside for another day as I can't throw fabric away -it's an illness, I can't help it. Then I made a quilt with this flower and decided to add one to the left over octagon and then it sat in a plastic bag for 3 years.  I added two layers of insulbrite, quilted it with diagonal lines coming from the flowers and bound it in a coordinating fabric form the Woodlands Bloom range.  I made the mistake of not pinning it enough and it moved hence the flower not being central. Despite that I think it looks great and will use it quite often.

It is amazing what we can use our 'mistakes for - if we get our thinking caps on. Heat pads are great - you will get a lot of use out of it!!

I actually like it off centre. Lovely and it has a good story behind it.
