You will need:
• One panel coffee-themed fabric squares
• One yd. coffee bean print fabric (A)
• One yd. coffee-themed striped fabric (B)
• 1/2 yd. coordinating fabric for binding
• Insulated lining
• Lightweight cotton batting
• 3 1/2" of 1"-wide hook & loop tape
Iron & board, pins, quilting ruler, scissors, sewing machine & matching thread
• Print full-sized pattern here.
• Use a 1/4" seam allowance and sew all seams with right sides together unless otherwise indicated.
• See photos for details and placement.
STEP 1: Cut fabric. Cut one 10" x 10" square from batting, and two 10" x 10" squares from insulated lining. Trim around one of the larger coffee icon squares, leaving a 1/4" border around outside edge of design.
Cut the following across 45" width of fabric:
eight 1 1/2" wide strips from (A)
five 1" wide strips from (B)
four 1 1/2" wide strips from binding fabric
STEP 2: Apply border strips. Pin one 1 1/2" strip across top edge of fabric square. Stitch using a 1/4" seam. Press fabric strip out from square and trim even with square. Pin second strip along left side of square. Stitch and press strip away from square, trimming edges even with square. Continue sewing 1 1/2" strips around outside edge of square.
Repeat the process using the 1" wide striped fabric, adding strips around outside edge of square. Repeat the process one more time adding the 1 1/2" wide strips around the outside edge of the square.
STEP 3: Insert strip. Cut across corner of design at a 45 degree angle. Insert a 1" strip of (B) and stitch trimmed piece back onto square.
STEP 4: Layer. Lay backing fabric right side down on a flat surface, place a square of insulated lining on top, then cotton batting, the second square of insulated lining, and the pieced hot pad right side up. Pin all layers together. Trim around outside edge of the hot pad top.
STEP 5: Finish. Topstitch through all layers, stitching between seam lines and around desired design elements. Trim lining, batting and backing fabric 1/4" smaller than hot pad top. Turn raw edge of binding under 1/4" and pin to back edge of hot pad along seam line. Hand stitch binding to back of hot pad. Press.
Now is the time to get creative! Use the instructions from the Hot Pad as a guide only, and change the number and size of the angle cuts as you like.
STEP 1: Cut fabric. Trim around four larger coffee icon squares, leaving a 1/4" border around outside edge of design. Also cut the following:
1 1/2" wide strips from (A)
1" wide strips from (B)
1 1/2" wide strips from binding fabric
One 11 1/2" x 49 1/2" from (A) for backing
STEP 2: Make squares. Construct squares in same way as Steps 2 and 3 of Hot Pad instructions. Note: Cut and add more strips where you want, if you like. Repeat to create four squares.
STEP 3: Make center panel. Cut an assortment of 12" fabric strips in different widths. Starting with a 2" wide strip, lay a quilting ruler across the top edge of fabric and trim strip at a slight angle. Pin a second strip of fabric with right sides together to top of freshly cut angle and stitch. Press second strip away from first strip. Once again trim top edge of second strip at an angle. Lay a third piece of fabric right sides together to top of freshly cut angle, and stitch. Continue adding fabric strips in this way, trimming angle and adding next strip, until sewn piece measures at least 10". Use quilting ruler to measure a 10" square.
STEP 4: Assemble panels. Stitch four squares and stripped center panel as shown.
Cut four 1 1/2" wide strips from binding fabric. Sew strips across sides and top and bottom edges of table runner, trimming ends even with edge of previous strip. Press strips out from center of table runner.
STEP 5: Layer. Lay backing fabric right side down on a flat surface, layer a piece of cotton batting on top, followed by the pieced table runner right side up. Pin all three layers together. Trim around outside edge of table runner top.
STEP 6: Quilt. Topstitch through all three layers, stitching between seam lines and around design elements as you like. Trim outside edge of table runner, leaving a 3/4"- wide border around outside edge.
STEP 7: Add binding & finish. Cut four 1"-wide strips from (B) and binding fabric. Pin the (B) strips to each edge of table runner. Stitch, and press strips out from edge of table runner. Trim ends even with top and bottom edges of table runner. Pin binding strips down each long edge. Stitch. Press strips out from edge of table runner. Trim ends even with top and bottom edges. Pin binding strips across top and bottom edges. Stitch. Press strips out from edge of table runner, trimming ends even with edges. Turn binding under 1/4" and pin to back edge of table runner. To miter corners, fold fabric at a 45 degree angle and hand stitch binding to back of table runner. Press.
STEP 1: Cut fabric. Trim around one of the smaller coffee icon squares on (A), leaving a 1/4" border around outside edge of design. Use pattern to cut a lining from (B). Cut several strips of varying sizes and fabrics.
STEP 2: Sew front of wrap. Sew strips of fabric to outside edges of icon square, trimming some at an angle and mixing prints. Lay sewn coffee wrap on top of pattern and trim around outside edges.
STEP 3: Assemble. Sew loop section of hook and loop tape to right side of lining fabric and stitch around outside edge. Lay lining and top side of coffee wrap together and stitch across top and bottom edge and right end. Stitch. Clip corners and turn right side out. Press. Turn in raw edges of coffee wrap and insert hook end of hook and loop tape in between. Stitch across end. Wrap around a coffee mug.
