I made this colorful quilted placemat to practice my free hand quilting and even assembling squares. I love all the colors that play in this placemat. These are nice on the patio table or TV trays too. They really live’n any place up.
I tried a method that I saw where you sew two squares together and cut them corner to corner to make triangles. Sewing them together you make some pinwheels. There is only one problem I had with doing this and that is the center of where I got pinwheels you have a lot of fabric in that center. When I quilted the placemat I did to run over the center of the pinwheels. I did take a rubber hammer and tried beating them down, but that was just to squish it not to try to sew on the center.
Now these don’t match much around the house but they sure are pretty. They do match my bedroom/sewing room I have some really bright quilts in there. LOL
