Hexie Hot Pad

 A pictoral tutorial:
 1)  Make a TEMPLATE with 10" Hexie Half Ruler, 7" Circle Ruler.


2)  Gather Supplies:
12" square Non-Fusible lightweight interfacing (Pellon 905)
12" square backing
10" square heat reflective batting (Thinsulate, Insulbright, etc.)
1 or 2 @ 10" squares cotton batting *
10" square focus fabric *

*Cut using Hexie-Half large ruler for 10" squares.
Fold the 10-inch square in half, and place the dotted seamline on the fold.

3) Backing:
Trace template on wrong side of fabric.  Layer right sides together with interfacing.

 Stitch on the outer drawn lines, pivoting at inner corners.

 Trim curves with pinking shears for a nice, notched smooth result.

 Clip inner corners.

 Snip Pellon

Turn right side out.


 Lay out backing, mylar batting, cotton batting, focus fabric.  Add an additional 2nd layer of batting below mylar, if desired.

 Pin; then stitch from point to point, quilting through all the layers.

(Followed a line of tape to keep line straight without marking.)

 Stitch from point to point.

Fold each curve over the raw edges and stitch along the curved edges to finish.  I used a blanket stitch.
Voila!  A Hot Hexie Hot Pad.

See this VIDEO for a terrific Grandmother's Flower Garden table-topper with matching hot pads, made using this technique.
