This year, I gave myself extra fabric and time to do it better. I cut it longer (although perhaps a little too wide?). I made and stitched binding around the edges.
And then I did a little scrap busting with the leftovers, quilting pieces together and sandwiching in bamboo wadding and a special piece of heat resistant wadding to make a trivet/oven mitt. That heat resistant stuff is weird and wonderful - the stuff I used came with instructions and an oven mitt pattern - very handy.
And then I picked out some favourite fabrics and made two more.
