It Will be Lovely in Seasonal Colors, Too!
Folded squares of fabric form the beautiful star design on the front of this hot pad. Lighthearted fabrics make it a lovely accent for your table.
You can make it in colors for each season, as well as in those that match your decor. It’s an easy project and a bit addictive so don’t be surprised if you go on and make several.
This is also a great project for using up some of those leftovers in your stash. Cut and fold squares into triangles, pressing each one well. Then layer them to create the star design.
The hot pad is turned, not bound, with a layer of cotton batting in the center. You may also want to add a layer of Insul-Bright batting for additional heat proofing.
Once completed, the hot pad, designed by Sharon Holland, is 6 1/2″ 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!
