The pattern came from Fabrics Plus in Anacortes Washington.
InstructionsIt went together really fast once I had all the pieces cut out. I used fusible batting ironed onto the backing so it wouldn't shift when I sewed the top pieces onto it. This makes a fast and easy gift. I think it could be completed in an afternoon even by a beginner. I like to hand stitch my binding down so it did take me awhile to do that.
Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Traditional, Holiday
100 % cotton and fusible batting inside
What was your inspiration?
I made this for a table runner swap on a quilt group I belong to. The gal I was sending to said she liked purples and blues.
What are you most proud of?
How pretty it came out and how quick and easy it went together. I am going to make one to give as a gift for a wedding I am going to in Sept.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Go for it..it's a fun project and would make great gifts for the holidays. You can adjust the length by just adding more strips onto it. Or less strips to make placemats or hot pads. If you are making them to use as hot pads I would suggest you use insulbrite or some other type of heat resistant batting.
