portable ironing pad

Getting ready for  workshops at Festival Of Quilts. Ironing pads  available commercially not very inspirational. So guess what....another excuse to use some Amy Butler fabric to make  my own.
Layered as follows...cotton, insulbright, warm and natural batting and cotton backing. Up until 0100 free motioning, forgot to put the adjust  presser foot properly so had to unpick lots of looopey quilting, drat!.Pressing it was fun too- because of the insulating layer reflecting heat back, got a bit tooooo hot for handling, so it appears to do the job.
