Watermelon Placemat

Join Quiltworxs Certified Instructor Julie Faulkner to make the fun for summer Watermelon Placemats. A sewing technique called foundation paper piecing is used to assemble the units required to make these placemats. Curved piecing is used to join the units after the foundation piecing is completed. The placemats also incorporate laser cut stitch and peel for applique of the melon seed design. The pattern includes enough foundation papers for six placemats.

Shadow Boxes

This is an “oldie but goodie”. The pattern has been around for a while, but it’s very “fat quarter friendly”, especially if you’ve bought a fat quarter “bundle” of co-ordinated fabrics (which is what I used), and then two colours that go with your fat quarter colours, one light and one dark.
