Hot Pad Tutorial November 9, 2009

 

100_1011

I made this matching set today.  You can click on the Free Tutorials tab above to find the link for the oven mitt.  This hot pad was also very easy.  You can use your own block pattern or follow my tutorial for my block.

STEP ONE:

Cut one 6″ square for center of block.

Cut four 3′” squares for corners of center block.

STEP TWO:

Sew 3″ squares to your larger square from corner to corner as shown.  You can mark lines to follow with a fabric pencil but I am lazy and didn’t bother.

STEP THREE:

Cut the excess triangles from each corner leaving a quarter inch seam allowance.

STEP FIVE:

Cute two 1″ x 6″ and two 1″ x 7″ strips for the inner border.  Sew on the 6″ long strips to opposite sides.  Press.  Then sew on the 7″ strips to the two remaining sides.  Press.  Trim off any excess.

STEP SIX:

Cut two 3″ x 7″ and two 3″ by 10″ strips from the outer border fabric (I used the same fabric as the inner triangles).  Sew on the short strips first.  Press.  Then sew on the long strips.  Press.  Trim excess.

STEP SEVEN:

Layer finished block, Insul-bright, and backing in a quilt sandwich.  Baste as desired (I didn’t bother since they were so small.).  I used my walkingfoot to quilt a quick grid pattern.

STEP EIGHT:

Once your block has been quilted, trim the excess.  Cut one 2 1/2″ by width of fabric (usually about 44″) for binding your hot pad.  Use the double binding method as you would on any quilt.

STEP NINE:

Wrap up your completed set for a great gift this season or enjoy them in your own kitchen.
