They’re Wonderful Gifts!
These charming little quilted circles are an in-between size that you’ll reach for often. Use them as trivets for small hot bowls or as coasters for large cups and mugs.
They’re great for leftover pieces of your favorite prints. The piped edges are nice finishing details although you can omit the piping and top-stitch around the outside edges instead.
These are super easy to make and great for beginners. Excellent instructions make them a breeze to put together. Go ahead and make extras while you’re at it as they make thoughtful gifts.
The finished mini trivets, from Sew 4 Home, are about 6″ across. Add a layer of Insul-Bright batting for additional heat-proofing.
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!
