They’ll Be Fun in a Favorite Combination of Scraps!

Colorful squares and fun black-and-white bindings make eye-catching potholders. They can be used as hot pads too and will be nice pops of color on your table and in the kitchen.

They’re super simple to make, even for beginners. You may not even need the pattern. Scraps are perfect for these, in whatever colors you prefer.

Basic Hot Pad Pattern

Layer them with a heat-resistant insulating material, such as Insul-Bright batting or silver ironing board fabric (plus at least one layer of cotton batting with either choice). Or use the heat-proofing method recommended in the pattern.

Basic Hot Pad Pattern

The potholders match the large casserole hot pad by the same designer (found here), although the squares are slightly smaller. A set of two potholders (or hot pads) and a large casserole hot pad will make an impressive gift.

Once completed, the hot pads designed by Mariesa Morgan from Ten Cow Quilts are 7 1/2″ x 7 1/2″.

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!
