Make Them Up in Your Favorite Colors!
Hexagons create a lovely hot pad using a quick and easy construction method. They’re appliqued in place in a modified Quilt-As-You-Go process so there’s no piecing required.
Sadly, a template was not provided. However, the construction process is easy to adapt. You can use a hexie template you already have, Google for a hexie to print of the size you want, or follow the instructions and draw out your own (convert centimeters to inches here). That also means you can make the hot pad as large or small as you want.
The instructions specify overlapping seam allowances before fusing and stitching the hexies down to a foundation fabric. You’ll achieve more consistent hexie shapes if you butt them up next to each other instead.
Once you have your template and have made one, you can quickly make several more. The hot pads are great gifts while also being a good use of scraps.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article).
