Quilt As You Go Hot Pad Pattern – raw edge technique!

Quilt as you go is such a quick and awesome way to whip up a project!  This quilt as you go hot pad pattern is the easiest thing to make.  Not a fan of the corner finger pockets? Leave them out.  You can quickly sew these up in around 30 minutes.  Seriously.

I kind of like my hot pads to be a little thicker- don’t like to burn my hands, so for this tutorial I made them double sided.  Each side of the hot pad has it’s own batting.  You could use the insul bright batting, but I figured 2 pieces was fine.  Feel free to make adjustments if you’d like.

I also don’t love my fingers to pop out of the ends when I grab something- so I put little triangle pockets on opposite corners.  My hand isn’t so large, so next time I would make them a little bit bigger- by my thumb can go into one of them at least.
