    Why an octagon shape?

    I make lots of hotpads (I sell them) and it would be easy to make one this shape. I make mine like you would make a pillowcase.

    You make the top and lay it face down onto the back fabric. Sew a loop on first so it hangs down into the middle. Trim the back to match the top.
    Then add the batting-I use 2 layers of traditional but use what ever- and then trim I like to put the pieced top into the middle between the back and the batting.
    Then just sew around the edges starting at the bottom and leave an opening to turn it with.
    Then turn it right side out and sew a finishing seam around the edge closing the opening in the process and quilt it down however you want.

    It is a good idea to baste the bottom edge to the batting before you sew around the edge.

    This is just my way of making them.

    thanks for the reply Rhonda. It is for my girlfriend, she wants to make one that size. She has one made like that already from many years ago but she can't find the pattern for it.

    What is she putting into the octagon? If she just wants to have 8 sections I can make a template for that. Just flat template plastic like my Dresden Kaleidoscope template.
    If she wants to do something more complicated I don't know. But I would think the same template would work no matter what she wants to do with each section.

    Not sure I understand what you mean by what is she putting in it. I am sure she will want to do piece work if that is what you are referring to.

    Yeah that was what I meant. Sorry it is my own slang I guess. I just wondered if she was doing something simple or more complicated piecing. I would love to see the pic of the one she has.
