Easy Halloween Placemat:
I just sewed 35 2 1/2″ (5 rows of 7) orange squares randomly together, added a 2 1/2″ border. Click here for more detailed instructions
I sandwiched the placemat (layer the back fabric right side down, the batting and then the pieced top right side up). Next I got the applique ready. I pounced on the black fabric, which already had fusible webbing ironed to the back, with our stencil #80006, Halloween Cat & Moon. After cutting it out, positioning it, and pressing it to adhere I made a quick go-round with a machine applique stitch and was ready to quilt.
I didn’t add a lot of quilting, how you do it is entirely up to you. I went around the border in the ditch, echoed the cat and moon and added #40081 String of Spiderwebs Stencil in the corner (Wonderfil GlaMore-Silver Thread), put on the binding and then voila! All done. For more specific instructions click on the first link below, #80006
Looking for something else to show off the rich beautiful colors of fall?
The fabrics I used are Starr Design Hand Dyes, Heavenly Fall pack of fat quarters. I put together some strips to equal the size I was after then attached another piece in a solid to complete the placemats. Typically placemats are around 12″ X 17″. Since I made this we created a stencil that has both the border and the leaves on it, #50031. It’s a great stencil which combined with your imagination will create something truly special. Wonderfil GlaMore Decorative Thread was used on this project, the gold really made the leaves pop! Don’t forget to enter the drawing with pictures of these projects! I’m so excited to see them! And you’ll be able to see them too along with all the others at #FullLineStencilProject on Instagram!
Have a blessed fall!
