The finished placemat appears to be about 12 inches across. You may want to make it somewhat larger for use as a placemat (so there’s room for silverware). The construction remains the same. Just cut the blades a bit longer. Or, make them up as is for a set of lovely “chargers” to showcase dinner plates.
Notice how the Dresden blades vary in length and shape. That gives the outside edge a scalloped look. The quilting around the outside edge can be done by hand or machine.
A variety of fabrics and scraps from your stash, all of similar value, will be charming in this project.
Construction is fairly simple and is done by machine with a bit of hand applique (which could be done by machine). Plus, the place mat is turned so there’s no binding to deal with.
The tutorial, from Sandra at Cherry Heart, is well illustrated and easy to follow.
