Set of 4 Curvy Copper and Black Reversible Placemats
17″ x 12.5″
These placemats are based on my original pattern “Sew Easy Curves” which can be found under this name in our pattern listing. Four coordinated fabrics are being used in the curvy design. Two of them appear twice in each placemat but always in different locations.
The floral fabric shows ornamental fans with floral designs in copper, teal and burgundy set in a black “leading” like stained glass. I added a metallic copper fabric, a dark brown print and a solid black.
The reverse side shows a calm print in ochre with a repeat of small S-shape swirls between straight stripes. This gives your placemats a totally different look.
Fabrics used in my table runners, center pieces and placemats are quality cottons. As batting I usually use a flat 50/50 cotton/polyester. Occasionally I also use 80/20 cotton/polyester for these items. They can be machine washed in cold water with a mild detergent and tumble dried on a low setting or dried while lying flat on a towel. Press with steam on a cotton setting. Many of these designs make also wonderful wall hangings in narrow wall spaces. The size of my mini runners is ideal for dinette or coffee tables. They can also be used as a topper on counters, side boards, buffets, dressers or book shelves and make nice wall hangings in narrow wall spaces.
“I love to work with colours and shapes and have designed quilt patterns for the past 25 years. I am especially intrigued by the complexity of scrap quilts which combine a multitude of fabrics. I design, assemble and quilt my projects on a home sewing machine in a smoke- and pet-free environment. Piecing is done with quality cotton fabrics. Batting in quilts is Hobbs Heirloom unless otherwise noted. This batting combines the best qualities of 80% cotton and 20% polyester. For table decor I prefer to use a flat 50/50 cotton/polyester blend.”
