The Perfect Last-Minute Gift!
A herringbone pattern makes these pot holders unique and a great use of leftover charm squares. Self-binding makes them even quicker to stitch together.
Construction is simple. Strips are sewn together similar to Log Cabin blocks, then trimmed into rectangles. Stitch two rectangles together, layer up and bring the backing around to the front for the self-binding.
Of course, these will be wonderful in just about any color combo. Here’s a Christmas version made by the designer.
You can also make a table topper or even a larger quilt with this fun pattern. Imagine several hot pad blocks stitched together, with a white (or other color) sashing around each block. The end result will be a gorgeous scrappy quilt. Hot pad designer, Melanie Thornton of Melanie Dramatic, shows us just how that might look.
Each hot pad is about 10″ x 10″. Add a layer or two of Insul-Bright batting (find it here) for heat proofing.
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). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
