Pattern Are Included for 4 Sizes!

Sometimes we come across a tutorial that is so wonderful that we just want to soak up every detail. That’s the case with this one for making these charming trivets.

The instructions are clear and every detail is illustrated. Plus, PDF pattern downloads are included for trivets in four sizes:

  • 6″ Dresden Plate
  • 9″ Petal Dresden
  • 12″ Dresden Plate
  • 15″ Petal Dresden

You can easily create more sizes by printing the PDFs at reduced or enlarged sizes.

We haven’t even gotten to why this project caught our eye in the first place. These trivets are so charming! We love the soft scrappy look, but they would be fabulous made up in any colorway that you prefer.

The tutorial from Kelly at Charming Chatter also includes instructions for square hot pads decorated with lace on the back and muffins stamped onto fabric for the front.

Be sure to use Insul-Bright batting (purchase it here) for heat-proofing your trivets and hot pads.

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!
