They’re Great for Scraps!

Turn string-pieced squares into charming pot holders with this easy project. Hand-stitching and pretty buttons are lovely finishing touches.

Start with skinny strips from your scrap bag and use a string-piecing technique (instructions found here). However, instead of using paper or fabric for the foundation, use batting for a quicker finish.

Striped Quilted Hot Pads Tutorial

Add a layer of Insul-Bright batting, a hanging loop, and a pretty button (like these flower buttons or cute polka dot buttons.)

The finished hot pads, designed by Alli from Woodberry way, are about 8.5″ square.

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!
