Holiday Hot Pad taught by Susan Wolfe

November 19, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Virtual meeting due to the Covid 19 pandemic. If anyone is interested in joining us for a virtual meeting and are not a member you can contact us at
Susan Wolfe has designed a Holiday Hot Pad which introduces an interesting method of making flying geese blocks. While this technique will not replace the old method in a lot of patterns, it is a way to “fancy up” your holiday table. Join us as we go step by step through its construction. Please have all your fabrics cut before the class.
NOTE: This is a workshop, not just a demo. The basic technique will be covered early in the meeting; however, construction of the Hot Pad will take the entire time allotted.
  • One (1) 3-1/2” x WOF strip holiday Green fabric – sub-cut into four (4) 3-1/2” x 6-1/2” rectangles*
  • One (1) 3-1/2” x WOF strip holiday Red fabric – sub-cut into four (4) 3-1/2” x 6-1/2” rectangles*

  • One (1) 13” square of insulbrite, or other heat resistant fabric
  • One (1) 13” square of batting
