I, too, used a fairly large safety pin to hold the batting while turning and it worked great. My pot holder ended up 8 1/2" and I quilted it SITD to finish it. Here a pic of it, front and back.

    Love that fabric. What a beautiful pot holder that one is!

    Thanks. I was just experimenting and came up with this hot mat. I used some precut 5" Civil War squares from my stash. The hot mat finished at 9 1/2" before quilting. Thank you again for making the tutorialName:  hotmat  front and back 2.jpg

    I think it is funny because I created and posted this tutorial almost two years ago. Glad people are still enjoying it.

    I'm with you. I love the fact that there is no binding and you end up with a unique look at the end that makes people wonder how you did that.

    Actually I was hunting another tut when I came across yours. Since then I have shared it with a couple of my quilting buddies and we have all been having a ton of fun making them. Guess it proves that sometimes "what's old is new again!" See the joy you started!

    I was thinking the same thing. I would think it would stay together better. Even a quick basting or tack stitch through the top and batting could be snipped loose after turning. Just my thought., anything to make it easier.

    I just wanted to say thank you for this tutorial. i made one potholder and thought it was so interesting the way it turned out that i had to show it to our little stitching group. They all thought i was going to show the disappearing nine patch - boy were they shocked that 1- it wasn't anything at all like the d9p and 2- how cute and easy the potholders turned out. thanks again. great way to use up scraps. i made mine with charm squares so it really isn't a potholder more like a hot pad!
