Hello and welcome to the Homemakery and my spot on the Quilt Petite Blog Hop!
I have long been a fan of Sedefs blog, Down Grapevine Lane, along with her recent fabric collection Sweet Orchard for Riley Blake. I was delighted to learn she was turning her talents to a book and was thrilled to get my hot little hands on a copy. If you are familiar with Sedefs blog you will know she has such an incredible eye when it comes to pretty fabrics and unique patchwork projects, you won’t be disappointed with Quilt Petite which is packed full of gorgeous projects, extremely thorough instructions and stunning photography.
With sweet projects a plenty in Quilt Petite for my turn on the blog hop I settled on making a Pretty On Point Placemat from Page 77 of the book. I followed Sedefs lead and picked some pretty florals from the Lecien Hight Tea collection which I paired alongside subtle low volume prints in a soft dove grey.
This project will have you whipping up half square triangles to create a gorgeous on point patchwork pattern, a nice twist on traditional half square triangle placements.
I was thrilled to find the placemat was a perfect fit for my tray!
This was a really quick project to whip up and I have a batch of Christmas on Point Placemats next up on my “to sew” list!
Pretty On Point Placemat Ingredients:
Fabrics from Lecien High Tea
Binding – Lecien Yarn Dyed Gingham
Wadding – Warm & White Wadding
