Here is how- I used 2" x 9" strips of fabric so I could make four hot pads and have a little room for a nice straight edge.- Use two layers of thin batting.-When quilting I only quilted the top pieced layer and one layer of batting. The other layer of batting and fabric for the back I added when I stitched on the binding. - Used a 1/4" seam allowance throughout.

GIFT IDEAS: You may want to make some of these to keep for yourself. Last year as part of my "Homemade Holiday" theme, I made a couple of these with all the scrap material I have collected over time. I used country patterns. Stuffed them in a basket with a bunch of other homemade stuff. They loved it! #universaltrim
