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 drawn lines, pivoting at inner corners.

 Trim curves with pinking shears.

 Clip inner corners.

 Snip Pellon

Turn right side out.

 Press.
 


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



 Pin; stitch from point to point.

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

 Stitch from point to point.


Fold each curve over raw edges and blanket stitch/quilt to finish.

I love your hexi hot pad! I've wanted to try hexis but always seem to see them in English paper piecing. Not sure I could work that small and all hand stitching....but a large hexi machine stitched...yes!
Thanks for the tut!
