Wonky Tic-Tac-Toe Hot Pads - part 1

This is part 1 of probably 3 or 4 posts.  As yall probably remember me mentioning in a previous post, on March 8th I'm flying overseas to visit my twin in Saudi for 3 months.  They have a quilt group over there in the area that my twin lives and I wanted to make some small gifts to give the ladies in the group.  Some of the fabrics were sponsored by Fat Quarter Shop.  I contacted Stephanie explaining what I was doing and asked if they would sponsor some fabric to make hot pads and they agreed!  Stephanie chose some really nice fabrics from Pat Bravo Art Gallery's Poetica Line, you will get a better look at them when I take pictures of the finished hot pads.  The other fabrics and such were sponsored by someone who wished to remain anonymous.  I chose the fabrics myself.  I think I did a great job choosing.  I chose all kinds of colors & designs.  There is something for every design taste.



Each Hot Pad will be 8.5" square when finished.  Last night I cut the fabrics into rough squares, sandwiched them with 2 layers of Insul-Brite for more protection.  Then I did the Wonky Tic-Tac-Toe quilting as shown below.  After doing one of the hot pads with the fabric from Fat Quarter Shop in the Tic-Tac-Toe grid, I decided that since the fabrics were dainty like in feel and look, that I could do only the first set of lines that were 3.5" apart.  I didn't finish with the Tic-Tac-Toe grid.

I JUST NEED TO CUT THE BINDING STRIPS, BIND THEM AND DO THE LOOP DE LOOP HANGY THING ON THE CORNERS.








STAY TUNED TO SEE FINISHED PICTURES OF THE HOT PADS.  ALSO STAY TUNED FOR WHEN I PRESENT THEM TO THE QUILT GROUP IN SAUDI.

THANKS FAT QUARTER SHOP FOR SPONSORING SOME OF THE LUSCIOUS FABRICS!
