Finishing up the sew-along for the Fat Quarter Shop’s Blog Remix event, the Pocketed Placemats pattern is on Jolly Jabber, the FQS blog. I am delighted to be a part of this fun event. Over the last three weeks we’ve made the tops and sewed them together with batting and backing, then turned them pillow case style.
Now, choose a complementary thread for some topstitching.
Top stitch in the ditch between the side pieces and the center block. This is just to keep the layers together. If you like, you can do more quilting, but this is a sew along so we will keep it simple.
Then sew a line of topstitching around the edge, catching the opening to close it.
And, that is it!! All done.
Ready to serve as holiday decor on your table, with napkins and flatware held nicely in the pocket.
As reader Pat in WNY commented on the last sew-along post, these would be ideal for rolling up for a picnic on a warm Autumn day.
Change the napkin color to change the look. These leaves can be used all through Autumn! Now I need a second set with flowers for spring.
Thanks to Fat Quarter Shop for including me in the Blog Remix event!!
