Tracy's Quilt

During Show and Tell at the Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild meeting, Tracy brought her latest finish.

A very large (King size?) quilt that will now be used on her bed.

Love the bright happy colors and this is a great way to use up fabric scraps.

Tracy also shared an Iron Tote/Caddy Pad she had just made.
There are several patterns out there, but I liked this one because of the square sides.
The silver heat resistant fabric on the inside allows you to pack up your hot iron while traveling.
The pad can also serve as an ironing board near your sewing station.

The tote packs up into a cute bag, allowing you to transport your hot iron back home.
This would be a great thing to take on quilt retreats.
And it would also make a nice gift for friends.
I will be quizzing Tracy more about a pattern at our next meeting, and I'll share with you what I find out.
