Hot Gift Idea: 5 Fun Quilted Hot Pad Patterns

Most quilters enjoy sewing for others. We get to spend time with fabric and, as a result, make our friends smile. But let’s face it, making a quilt or quilted item for most people you know is just not realistic. But making smaller items is a great way to remind folks that you are thinking of them.

A hot solution

Hot pads are a natural item for a quilter to make. For one thing, we already have the supplies! And we usually have to time to make something quick and easy. Hot pads are small and can be made from one patchwork block, or simply a piece of fabric with some cute appliqué. Layered with a few extra pieces of batting for insulation, a quick quilted seam or two, binding, and you’re done. It doesn’t get much easier than that!

Being a gourmet cook isn’t a requirement for enjoying a hot pad. We all need to eat at some point, so clearly hot pads are the perfect gift for anyone! Customizing a hot pad in the colors, theme or style of someone’s kitchen or hobbies is super simple.

Here are some quilted hot pad patterns from Bluprint to inspire you:

Next time you bring along a dish to share, leave the hot pad as a hostess gift. They also make great teacher gifts, or thank you gifts for thoughtful friends. If someone is kind enough to bring a covered dish of food to share with your family, include a hot pad inside the dish when returning it. A small handmade gift always warms the heart!
