Make It Up In Your Favorite Fabric!
This whimsical hot pad will be fun hanging on the kitchen wall waiting to be put to use. It’s generously sized to sit under hot dishes and can be given whatever personality you prefer.
Choose a 10″ layer cake square for the piano body and add a keyboard made from scraps. Make yours elegant, funky, sweet or whatever works with your kitchen.
This is a quick project, making it a wonderful gift for music lovers. Give it to a favorite music teacher, as a housewarming gift or for birthdays and holidays.
The instructions specify paper piecing for the keyboard but regular piecing will work too. Just be sure to add seam allowances when cutting out the pieces. Add a layer or two of Insul-Bright batting for heat proofing.
The pattern, from Cut, Stitch + Piece Quilt Patterns, produces a 12″ x 9″hot pad.
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!
