194 - Clam Shell Placemats

No curved piecing! Just “Press & Stitch”.

This ultimate quilt-as-you-go method for curves allows you to attempt otherwise difficult designs with ease and accuracy. No piecing necessary. Just draw the given grid directly on the batting, press the rotary cut shapes in place and sew a custom made bias tape over the raw edges. Now your quilt pattern is quilted and only needs binding.

The companion quilt pattern 185 Easy Clam Shells features two elegant table runners.
