Step One

Begin by cutting a 3 inch square from one of the fabrics. Choose several different coordinating fabrics that will be cut into 1 ½ inch strips to make the top block. Starting with the center square measuring 3 inches use the log cabin technique to make your hot plate to the desired size.

Step Two

Cut the backing fabric, Solarize insulating interfacing and 2 pieces of Toasty Cotton batting to match the size of your finished block. Lay the finished block on the table right size facing up, then the backing fabric right side facing down. Now lay the two pieces of batting on top and lastly the Solarize with the silver side up.

Step Three

Pin together and sew around the edges using a ¼ inch seam allowance and leaving a 3 inch opening in the center of one side.

Step Four

Turn the pot holder right side out and tuck in edges of opening. Pin ribbon loop to one side of the opening and then pin opening closed. Sew all around the outer edge, and stitch in the ditch over the rest of the hot plate and enjoy.
