Instructions are Included for a Version with Pieced Triangles!

Leftover charm squares go together quickly into these charming hot pads. They’re so easy to make that you’ll have a set completed before you know it. They make wonderful gifts too, so make extra while you’re at it.

Select six 5″ charm squares that work well together for each hot pad. Make two the same for a set, or make them different with some overlapping fabrics to tie them together. For example, use the same border with different sets of triangles.

Hexie Hot Pads

The hot pads are constructed in a modified quilt-as-you-go method. Insul-Bright is used for the batting, making them heat proof. The hot pads are turned so there’s no binding to deal with. Easy!

While you can make this with a hand-made template, a 60 degree ruler will speed construction. The Fons and Porter 60 degree pyramid ruler is a good choice for this and many other projects.

Instructions are also included for making hot pads from two-color triangles. Once you understand the construction process you can easily enlarge the hot pads into a table topper or place mats, giving the triangles as many layers as you want.
