While visiting Berlin, Ohio my Mom remembered how she used to make this years and years ago. It so happened that I had seen a trivet made with this technique, in the same place, across the street from where my mother remembered having done this. When I got home, I had a message from Sara (the fabric of meditation)showing me this exact project she was woking on, and it challenged me to do it!
We got the pattern from Dawning dreams(.http://dawningdreamsblog.blogspot.com/2009/06/beer-cap-hot-pad-pattern.html
