    Default Hotpads by Rhonda

    I used to sell to a local gift shop for about 12 yrs. Over that time I made alot of hotpads. It was my biggest seller.
    So here are some of those hotpads.
    I am a miniaturist and mostly work in 1 1/2" hsts etc in most of these. The center quilt block is 6" x 6" and with the border it is approx 8" x 8"

    This is not paper pieced. I developed my own shortcut method I call Piece & Cut.

    Very nice! I love piecing those tiny blocks, too. What price are you able to get for all this tiny work? (if you don't mind telling)

    I sold them to Joette for $9 and she sold them for $19.50 in her store. And I had a hard time keeping up with the demand. She was located in a tourist area that is in the Amish area in mid Iowa. Kalona uses quilts as their theme for marketing their tourist industry. The shops have quilts painted on the windows/ the Chamber of Commerce has quilts on display. You will see quilts in painted tiles on the sidewalks and one intersection of the streets downtown has a quilt painted in the center of the intersection.

    Since she sold her store I haven't found the same sort of market tho. I was blessed to be hooked up with her. My dd was on vacation and she had one of my keychains with her. when she went into Joette's store she showed her what I made. And Joette asked that I stop and see her. That is how I got started selling to her. She helped me fine tune my methods as in choosing the best batting for the hotpads deciding on the best size to make them etc.

    But her husband passed away and she closed the store about 4 or 5 yrs ago.
