I've been promising a new tutorial for a while
and finally here it is !
It's quick , it's easy and you can change the colours
and make it for kids or big people .
They would look great on your Easter breakfast table !
You will need about 20 x 1" x 60cm strips
in fabric of your choice .
wadding and backing fabric approx 65cm x 40cm .
Make sure your wadding and backing is
a bit larger than your front piece.
Join your 1' strips to make a piece about 40cm .
Lay your backing fabric right side down .
Sandwich the wadding between the joined piece and
the backing fabric . Secure.
Stitch in ditch along all joins .
Use a fabric marker and trace 4 egg shapes about
the size of your hand on the back of the quilted piece.
Repeat for a larger egg shape for placemat about A4 size .
Do not cut shapes out yet.
Stitch all around shapes .
Cut out all egg shapes about 1cm from stitched line .
Use clippers or small sharp scissors to snip little cuts
all around from the edge
to the stitched line taking care not to go too far .
Give your coasters and placemat a good shake to shaggy up the edges .
I hope these instructions are clear enough for you .
Please let me know if you make some as
I'd love to see them in your choice of colours .
