I have now dug out a jellly roll of fabric. It is the only jelly roll I have ever bought and I bought it about 10 years ago. It has been moved from pillow to post but never opened, now it's time has come. I think that I should be able to get about 12 placemats out of this lot, maybe even a few more.
The colours are very pretty and would have been lovely 10 years ago, but, they are not today's colours. Also, the fabric has been rolled up like this for over 10 years so there is going to be some distortion. The batting I have on hand is a bit thinner as well but one of my objectives is to use up all the stock I have on hand. I have decided to make the binding strips only one thickness for these mats as it suits the lighter weight batting .
Pretty straight forward piecing and I like the off centre circular quilting. Takes a bit of time and cotton but really easy to stitch.
The piecing is much the same only placed different and I managed to put a join in my binding right at the corner, not good.
The quilting is much the same as the previous mat but this time I used an off centre square. Basic shapes make a great starting point for this type of quilting. How many to go? Triangle, rectangle etc. etc.
