60 Degree placemats and binding
I love using 60 degree cuts on rulers. They make such interesting quilt blocks. I'm going to be teaching a class on sewing these great little projects in November. We'll start by sewing strips of various sizes together and sub cutting the strip sets into triangles.
Depending on how many strips you use and how you arrange the triangles, you'll get a different look every time. Even though each of the placemats below are a little different, they all use the same fabric so they are a nicely coordinated set.
The plan for the sew day/class is to make a place mat or two. Quilt them simply and then work on binding. I've got lots of tricks and tips for perfect binding that you can learn and practice on these little projects. We'll cover binding preparation, stitching to the front and hand sewing or stitching to the back and machine stitching and how to get a perfectly mitered corner as well as invisible joins.
The studio will be open from 9am to 9pm on Tuesday, November 15 and you can come for as short a time or as long a time as you want. It's a choose your own adventure day!
