|Quilted patchwork placemats|
I did the packs in coordinating prints that matched the color theme from the front of each. Perhaps the one thing I would have done differently is to have done the backs all in the same print so that they would be reversible ...
Using Sarah's tutorial ... I started by mining the scrap bin for 2.5" or larger pieces.
Then I created 4 different color pallets ... her 3-year-old daughter must have everything pink ... so, of course, that was one of the color pallets that I chose. I did mine a bit more random that Sarah did hers as I suspect my color assortment wasn't as well stocked.
Her table is round, so I deviated from Sarah's plan and created a cardboard template from an oval placemat that I had.
I then used the template to mark and cut the placemats into 4 equal ovals.
I used a black and white pin stripe as a neutral binding on the four, first cutting the binding on the bias using this tutorial and cutting the strips 2.25". I was a bit nervous, but with a little clipping at the curves, it actually went on quite evenly AND easily.
I will definitely make them again ... but perhaps allow a little more time ;-)
Hope all is well with you and yours ...
All the best,
