Lemoyne trivet for VA family

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Choosing to use the matching thread colors ... a bit challenging, with changing out the threads every time I went to a different point. When it came to choosing the edge color-the backing color did nothing to the front. So with my husband's help, we chose the blue ... I think it came out quite well. Yes, husbands can help and can have good ideas! ;-) What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun! There's so many choices of combinations. Others have adapted the size & such of this pattern, but I'm just fine with the way it is.

What you will need

  • cotton fabrics and batting as suggested by pattern
  • chose fabric color to coordinate with recipient's colors -- red
  • gold
  • blue

Q&A with mimix10

Pamillia asked:
Great fabric choices. As for threads ... I would go with an old gold & I think that it would accentuate the star beautifully. It would also pull out your blue & red really well. The gold I am thinking about is that deep gold in the large piece of your fabrics. Please show us what you finally used & your final creation. Have fun.
mimix10 answered:
you are talking about the quilting color, correct? I think that would work. What color to use for SEWING the pieces though? There will be reds that will be sewn together as well as alternating gold & blue.It'll be a gift so I don't want to mess it up!
