Welcome to Sewhooked and my post for the Blog Hop Party with Give-Aways hosted by The Quilting Gallery!
This is one of my favorite events to participate in! Not only do I get to visit loads of gorgeous and inspiring quilting blogs, but I get to give away free stuff, one of my all-time favorite things to do!
Make sure to read all the way to the end for a free project,
a fun giveaway, a special discount and mustaches!
This year, I’ve worked up this fun seasonal placemat to share with you. It’s EASY peasy.
To create it, you need the following:
- 1 pumpkin, pieced at 10 1/2″ or 10″ finished (copy the free, 5″ pumpkin pattern below & enlarge at 200%)
- 2 maple leaves, pieced at 5 1/2″ or 5″ finished (free 5″ pattern link below!)
- 2 – 5 1/2″ squares of background fabric
- 2 – 2 1/2″ x 20 1/2″ strips of background fabric (stitch top and bottom)
- Piece as shown above to create a 20″ x 14″ placemat. Embellish & quilt as desired.
Feeling ambitious? Add some nine-patches or other 5″ blocks of your choice! This layout also includes a 1″ strip of background fabric between the pumpkin.
For my Blog Hop visitors, I offer this special giveaway:
Just comment below with your favorite technique. Paper piecing? Embroidery? Hand quilting? I wanna know!
