Easily Adjust the Size for Smaller Coasters or Larger Table Mats!
These charming hot pads are made in a surprising way. Fold and layer hexagons for a quick finish. There’s no piecing involved!
Select 7 fabrics that go well together and an eighth one that will be hidden (a great use for that ugly why-did-I-buy-this fabric sitting in your stash!).
While the instructions don’t include it, we’d add a layer of Insul-Bright batting (find it here) for more heat-proofing. Especially so if you’ll be using yours under under hot dishes or as pot holders.
The finished hexies are a generous 9 1/2″ across, large enough for hot pads and potholders. You can easily make them larger or smaller. Simply adjust the size of the beginning hexagon (here’s the template).
These are so easy to make. You can have several put together in just a few hours.
The tutorial for this clever project is from Elise at Enjoy It.
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).
