I promised to show you more photos of the placemants and coasters I was making as class samples.
The classes start on Friday 9th March, and here’s what folks will be making:

Finsihed size approx. 16″ x 12″
This is a set of 6 placemats, each made slightly differently to give folks a range of creative options.  For example, they can be quilted different ways:

 

Some are finished in the same way you would bind a quilt, or for those who haven’t learnt that yet, they can be made with no binding And they can be decorated with handstitching or ribbon/trim in any way you like.

All the placemats are made with heat resistant wadding, which makes them practical and slightly structured.

The coasters are simply mini versions of the placemats.

We will also be making this handy storage basket.
And why not finish the set with a cutlery storage basket.
There is a tutorial for this basket available here.

So there you have it.  A set of 6 placemats and coasters.  I think these would make a lovely house warming or Mother’s Day gift!  
Hope you are having a great Tuesday!
