FWQA {for the Home} Blog Collaboration !

Andrea over at Knitty Bitties asked me several weeks ago to be a part of a fantastic blog Collaboration she wanted to host.

I had a few reservations because we were asked to sew completely with solids... that's not something I normally do.. but I was up for the challenge and I totally trusted Andrea that it would be totally fun to do! :) So I said yes...

A few weeks ago I received this scrumptious package in the mail...
Kona Cottons

Can I just say I LOVE Kona Cottons... All the white in my quilts is almost always Kona Cotton... So I was a bit excited to sew with all these fun colors...

I decided early on that I was going to make a Heating Pad Cover ! Tah Dah !!!


Farmers Wife Blocks

Remember THIS heating pad cover? I had so many emails and "I want's..." that I decided it would be super fun to make one for the collaboration... Especially because we're Giving Away our projects !


Farmers Wife Blocks

I chose 6 blocks from the Farmers Wife Sampler Quilt Book... They are: #34 Flock, #39 Friendship, #41 Friendship Star, #68 Postage Stamp, #73 Rainbow Flowers, and #108 Windmill


Farmers Wife BLocks

It was fun to challenge myself and only use solids and only the solids given to us... And I'm pretty happy with how it turned out...


Farmers Wife Blocks

O.K. Be sure and pop over to Andrea's blog Knitty Bitties and see all the other fun projects that are being shown this week! Tomorrow Jody from Fabric Shoppe will be playing along !


Happy Sewing ! ooxx`jodi

Too lovely to cover my old heating pad, would have to be a pillow! Love any color combo!

How pretty! thank you for sharing. I would choose navy, lime and tangarine for my three colors to use!

I adore this heating pad. Mine rarely leaves my side as it gets cold as well. If I could only use three colors it would be charcoal gray, pale spring green and light teal.

Solids are so pretty, aren't they? Love your cover!!

KatieQ said...

The heating pad cover is a great idea. My first choice would be aqua, red, and white, but after seeing some of the colors used in the projects, I'm warming up to yellow, green, and blue.

Karin said...

What a great idea to make a heating pad cover! We use the rice bags to warm up in the winter, especially, and now my mind is coming up with ideas for new covers ... my current favorite colors are a golden yellow, grey, and Kona snow.

Jodi, your work is just so gorgeous! I don't really know what colors to choose! It depends on the colors and my mood. lol. Right now I am into watching Downton Abbey on dvd where the colors are luscious! So, my color choice would be olive-gold, dark pumpkin and either a marine or midnight blue!

Is it just me?

I totally don't get how to use Rafflecopter.

I am answering the question here, because I couldn't figure out how to answer at their site:

Gold, cream, and brown.

Somebody explain it to me, please.

May I first congratulate you on this lovely cover.
I would choose a Grey Whit and dark Purple.
Now, may I also ask what is a heat pad, apart from the obvious, i know it heats something, but is it for your Bed or can you use it in a chair or something. My Neice suffers from aches and pain all over and carries a hot water bottle, but at the office she could have something like this while in her chair. Looks great tho.
