Table Mat With Fun Prairie Point Border
- 1 charm pack*
- 1/3 yard each of two coordinating prints*
- 1/3 yard cotton quilt batting
- Basic sewing tools and supplies
- *All fabrics in sample are from Eat Your Fruits & Veggies by Pat Sloan for Moda.
Note: All seams including basting are 1/2 inch.
- Using 14 coordinating squares from the charm pack, fold each square diagonally from corner to corner, wrong sides together, to make a half-square triangle.
- Fold the half-square triangle in half again along its longest edge as shown in Diagram A; be sure to align the edges. Press well. This will produce one prairie point; repeat to create a total of 14.
- Each border will consist of seven prairie points. With the raw edges of the prairie point facing down, open the fold along the side and insert a second prairie point. Continue adding opening and inserting prairie points (shown in Diagram B), adjusting the length of the border to measure 14 inches.
- Baste across the bottom edge of the prairie points. (Diagram C)
- Cut two 15 x 25-inch rectangles, cutting one from each of the prints.
- With right sides together, pin the prairie point border to the right side of one of the rectangles.
- Pin a 15 x 25-inch rectangle of batting to the top of the wrong side of the second rectangle.
- Pin the batting/fabric layer on top of the first rectangle with right sides together.
- Stitch around the circumference leaving a 3-inch opening along one side. Turn right side out and press.
- Hand-stitch the opening closed.
- Sew two rows of the topstitching around the edges of the table mat, spacing them as desired.
