First Tomato and hotpads

I made a couple of hotpads for Mom for Mother's Day, picking colors that were nice for spring. Here she is holding them:

And here's a closeup. I used some 100% cotton toweling in the middle of the bargello style one, which makes it pretty heatproof. Making a hotpad is a good use for these prairie point stars, since all the layers of fabric are too much for a quilt top anyway. This one didn't need any layers added! Anyone else made one of those way back when?

And here's my first ripe tomato! It's only a cherry tomato, but it was very good. :D
