I’m taking part in the Handmade Birthday Club with some of my fellow Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild members. I made a really cool set of placemats for my friend, Denise.
Since I put in the effort to make myself a paper-piecing pattern to create these, I might as well share it with the rest of you, right?!
You’re in luck.
I’ve made this (sort-of) pattern available for free on Craftsy. That’s right. It’s free! You can find the pattern here.
Why do I say sort-of? Well, if you haven’t done paper-piecing before this might not be the most easy to follow. Here’s what you will find in this pattern:
- Some really basic instructions, but if you’re new to this technique I’d recommend looking up a YouTube video or really in-depth tutorial. I’m sure there’s hundreds of them available out on the web & paper-piecing can be a little tricky to wrap your head around if you haven’t tried it before.
- A pretty basic formula to use to figure up how much yardage you’ll need for your project.
- A photograph of the placemats I made & a few digital renderings of what a quilt could look like in various sizes.
- A page of project ideas with dimensions and grid layouts for different standard sized projects.
- There’s the paper-piecing pieces and printing instructions.
Hope you try it out and enjoy!
