Quilted Hot Pad - finished pot holder with ring hanger addedI was given some completed, pieced quilt squares and there was an extra quilt square I couldn't use in the quilt I was making. I don't like to throw useful things away, so I made it into this quilted hot pad.


Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 1


  • 1 11 by 11" quilt square
  • 1 11 by 11" fabric square for back
  • 1 11 by 11" batting square for middle
  • thread
  • scissors
  • pins


  1. Cut a piece of batting and backing to fit size of your quilt square. Pin all three layers together like a sandwich. Right side up for quilt square, then batting, then wrong side down for backing fabric. Pin together.
  2. Quilted Hot Pad - quilt square
    Quilted Hot Pad - three layers cut
  3. Machine quilt to hold all three layers in place. I chose to machine quilt along the seam line of the pieced fabric squares and rectangles.
  4. Quilted Hot Pad - stitching in the ditch through the layers
  5. Trim the batting and backing to a 1/4" seam. This will allow you to fold down the top fabric to the underneath side to finish the edges.

  7. Fold the top fabric twice and pin on underneath side. Handstitch. Add a plastic ring for hanging if desired.
  8. Quilted Hot Pad - fold top edge twice and turn to the back, pin, and handstitch

I'm surprised you didn't use a square of the heat resistant INSULBRITE for the inside of your potholder. It insulates much better against high heat then just quilt batting.
