Here's the tute I promised about how to make my round trivets/hotpads. I've included a LOT of pictures, so I put it all in a PDF file for you. It's has start-to-finish intructions, and includes detailed instructions on how I join the bias binding on these as well as some info on quilting them.
Open the TrivetTute.pdf at the end of this post to see the complete tutorial.
Hope you enjoy the tute!
Please PM me if you have questions.
