A very busy group of wonderful quilters, sewists
and creative spirits.
a very special place in my heart for this effort.
are placed RST, mark diagonal lines, and sew 1/4"
on each sides of those diagonal lines.
added fabric to the top and bottom of that unit to make
the first strip for the place mat.
(remember I am at the beach with limited supplies)
And then the fun began for a Quilt as You Go (QAYG) place mat.
My QAYG tutorial is here for a fun wonky place mat.
I added the first pieced strip, right side up (RSU)
Keep placing strips right sides together (RST) and sew 1/4" seams
I like to press each seam as it is sewn.
You can see here I am alternating my prints.
When all strips are sewn...
it's time to trim and square it up.
Still needs a little more squaring up.
When one does not have a larger surface to trim...
it can be a challenge to square up.
Here's a close up of the back..
the piece is quilted because of the QAYG technique
and now its all completed
Sew this was fun!
I met the requirements for two challenges with one project!
And the best part...I can, once again, pay it forward!
