Lets just say I was very excited to receive this wonderful copy of Sedef Imer's first book - Quilt Petite for Tuva Publishing. Sedef has a style and way all her own and to have a whole book filled with ideas and inspiration it certainly was a hard pick to pick one project to make for this Blog Hop.
A few days before the book arrived I had this bundle of Slow and Steady by Tula Pink arrive and I just loved that there were so many green prints and colours in this range. I knew these would match my kitchen perfectly and so decided to make the "Pretty on Point Placemats" which I knew would look fabulous on my table for summer.
I do love making Half Square Triangles - and with them turned on point make this design great to feature lots of fabrics. I decided to make them all with a background fabric to really let the prints and design pop. After a bit of trimming all my point were perfect and it was easy to work through the steps in the pattern to make these placemats.
I think this is the best binding fabric - EVER!
After some machine quilting along the diagonals of the Triangles and behind the Cutlery pocket these placemats are almost to pretty to be used on the table but I am a practical person and love to see things I made used and loved. Summer entertaining will be fun and how great is that Cutlery Pocket. It think that was almost the feature I was drawn to the most.
So I could hardly stop at one - so I made six for our table! I think I am also going to make a matching Table runner just using the on point HST's and that fabulous Binding to match.
Sedef has announced that she is holding a Giveaway - so for all the details you can head over here to see how to enter.
