    Boston Star Hotpad Class - Will begin Mon Aug 20

    Monday Aug 13 I will post the first part of a class on how to make a hot pad my way with my Boston Block shortcut method. It is really easy to do and a beginner can do this!!!

    I am going to post this in sections and will post a new section each day til we have the hotpad finished.

    I hope to have some conversation along the way and I encourage you to post pics of your progress as we go.

    You will need:

    Fabric:
    Using a 2 1/2" template

    2 1/2" x 16" light fabric
    2 1/2" x 8 1/2" medium fabric
    3 1/2" x 8" dark fabric

    Backing - A square cut slightly larger than the size you want your hotpad to be.
    Some like to use insulbrite for the backing or in the middle

    Here is a discussion about using insulbrite
    Has anyone made potholders with insulbrite?

    Batting - I use 2 layers of Fairfield Co's tradtional batting. It is dense.
    You can use cotton batting or whatever you like.


    A template
    2 1/2" template will make a 6 1/2" unfinished quilt block
    3" template will make a 8" unfinished quilt block
    3 1/2" template will make a 9 1/2" unfinished quilt block

    You can add borders to make your hot pad the size you would like it to be or you can leave it without any borders. That is up to you.

    If you prefer you can use a larger template and make your quilt block into a table topper or wall hanging etc.

    I do send out a 1 1/2" and a 2 1/2" templates for free. Just send me your postal address in a PM or email. I will get them out to you.

    I do have 3" templates I can send out for free for this class only
    but I don't have any plastic grid for them. they would just be clear squares.

    You can actually do this in your own timing if you can't join now.
    The class will remain online as a tutorial.

    Thanks!! Rhonda

    If you have a square template of a size you like it will work just fine.

    I haven't done a tutorial in a long time. Sign me up Rhonda. Not sure if I can do it as fast as you can but I will get it done. I've never done a pot holder before.
    Happy Quilting!

    If I can find my small templates in time I will be joining you. I finally have pegboard installed on one wall in my sewing room. Yeah! Every template/ruler I find goes up on it now.

    Rhonda, if I am smart enough to follow this, I will try. I haven't been able to do any quilting with my surgeries, so I may just have to follow along at my own pace.
