Printed Fabric Hot Pads

Island Batik sent a panel of Leah Day's new fabric called Heart Medallions in the last Ambassador box.  My panel was a purple batik with heart medallion figures printed on top.  There were four prints on my panel.  I'm sorry I forgot to take a photo of the fabric before I jumped in and cut it up.  The fabric is Island Batik and comes in several colors.

Leah Day organized the latest Quilty Box and each box contains a couple yards of her Heart Medallion fabric.  If you aren't familiar with what Quilty Box is all about, you might want to click the link on Quilty Box or Leah Day's Blog to find out more about it.

I've been working on a quilt I hope to post on Monday, so I didn't want to take on another large project.  I decided to cut the prints into four separate pieces and to make hot pads out of them.  The medallions were just the right size for hot pads.

I used Insul-Bright from The Warm Company and a layer of 80/20 Warm batting for the inside and matched up a lovely purple batik from a past line for the back.  Machine quilting was easy by just quilting along the medallion designs.
