Quilt-Along quilt

Quilt in progress.

Adapted from Oh Fransson Quilt-Along. My quilt is square with 5 x 5 blocks rather than 5 x 6.

I used Heather Bailey Freshcut range of fabrics. Check out Heather Bailey’s Freshcut Flickr group for other projects using the same fabrics and Quilt-Along Flickr group for quilts with other combination of fabrics.

Materials

2 16′ x 10′ cotton fabric pieces
1 16′ x 10′ felt
1 4.5′ x 4.5′ cotton fabric for the pocket
18 ‘ matching ribbon

Fold edges of pocket and top stitch.

Stitch pocket to fabric around bottom and side edges. Then sew 3 small pockets from top to bottom for cutlery.

Place both cotton fabric right sides together and felt on top. Place ribbon folded in half in between the cotton fabrics.

Pin edges.

Stitch all around the fabrics leaving a 3′ opening on one side to turn placemat inside out.

Turn placemat inside out and iron well. Top stitch close to the edge.

Roll placemat before storing away.

Another combination of fabrics.
