Step 1:

Using your rotary cutter and ruler, prepare your fabrics

-Cut: Denim backing fabric: 45”x20”

Wadding: 47”x22”

-Press fabrics to remove any creases

Step 2:

-Spray baste the backing fabric to the wadding

-Lay wadding out flat with backing on top, right side facing up

-Fold back half of backing, spray with temporary fabric adhesive then unfold backing, smoothing out fabric from centre outwards

-Repeat with the other half of the fabric

-Turn over the backing/wadding so right side of backing is now facing downwards

Step 3:

-Mark the centre point of a short side of the backing with a pin

-Position one fabric strip centrally on top of the wadding, aligning with the pin. ---Pin in place

-Position second fabric strip directly on top of the first strip, right sides together and pin in place

-Sew ¼“ seam along the length of the strip

-Flip open the strip and press

-Repeat this process with a further three strips

Step 4:

-Return to the central strip and repeat the process outlined in Step 3 until 9 strips wide in total

Step 5:

-Trim to a finished piece 19 ½“x40” ready to divide into placemats and coasters

-Cut along the straight seam to give a piece 7 strips wide and another piece 2 strips wide

-Out of the 7 strips piece, cut 4 placemats to size 15”x10”

-Out of the 2 strips piece, cut 8 coasters to size 4 ½“x4½ “

Step 6:

Prepare binding using 10 fabric strips

-Cut 4 strips in half, 2 strips in 4, 4 strips in 8

-Fold each strip in half lengthways and press

-Fold each long outer edge into the centre and press

Step 7:

Attach the binding to each placemat and coaster

-Position short sides of placemat into the fold of the binding, hold in place with quilt clips

-Using a walking foot, sew through all layers

-Repeat with long sides of placemat but first unfold binding and fold in raw edge ¼“ then position placemat into fold of binding, hold in place with clips then sew in place
