What is it, and what does it do, you say? It sure isn't pretty...
Essentially, it is a seat cover that comes with a hot pack inside. Heat the hot pad in the microwave, stick in into the cover, take it with you if you are going to sit somewhere cold. It is meant to be warm, not hot, and to stay warm for 6 hours. Here is what it looks like, opened: (pretend this pink chair somewhere out there in freezing temperature).

That's when my husband wisely said: "why don't you just make a quilted cover for it?" Duh! Didn't think of it.
Since he may want to use it (when he is going by himself of course, I won't give it up), I figured pretty, flowery fabrics would not do. So I dug into my black and white stash and pulled those out:
mmm... nice, but boring.
Added a few scraps of aqua to royal blue:
Much better. I may have stolen the idea from someone at guild meeting last night, but in any event, black and white and blue it is.
I am using the quilt as you go method demonstrated by Adrienne last night (I will link to the guild meeting pictures when they are up).
Well that's as far as I got tonight, but I am determined to get this baby done. Soon. Before my next trip to the rink.
What are you working on?
