Hello quilting friends,
During the FQR 2013, I was chatting to these amazing talented ladies and told them although I did loads of quilting and patchwork at home, hardly any got showcased or blogged about it. This placemats were actually sewn during easter at my parents house in Brazil.
I wanted to make a gift to my handsome brother, and some chic placemats for his 1st home seems like a good idea. Choosing the fabric was hard because I didn’t want to make something too serious either too childish. It is much easier to sew for woman. I found a replica of ‘copacabana’ side walk pavement design and choose to use variations of black, white and orange complementary fabrics.
Facts: Card Trick Quilt block as base of the design. Used the left over triangles for the cutlery runner.
I did wrote a pattern and notes for this project somewhere and as soon as I find it, I will make it available for free download. In the meanwhile do feel free to use it as inspiration.
