We used some of Pam's leftover fabric scraps and some special batting that is actually heat resistant, specially for hot pads. I started by pinning all three pieces together (top, batting, and bottom). Then I stitched around the perimeter using a special "walking" foot on the sewing machine. It's used for quilting because you typically have multiple layers of thicker fabrics. Then I proceeded to quilt across the pad. I used a simple vertical line, but you can really go crazy here and stitch however you want. Finally, I put the binding around the edge.
Repeating this for the entire quilt will be a more time consuming task, but it's a great feeling knowing that these are the last steps and I will have a completed quilt! I've already been searching out my next project on Pinterest. Better not get ahead of myself! Stay tuned for a final post featuring my finished t-shirt quilt!
