Play with Value Placement to Enhance the Design!
Celebrate a new baby with this charming play mat. It’s perfect for tummy time, naps, and is easy to take in the car.
Plus, it’s a quick project and great for using some of those goodies in your stash. The half-square triangles start with 7″ squares so you may even have scraps that will combine into a pleasing design. The wide binding is a great finishing touch.
This also works as a beautiful table topper. Give the mat a more sophisticated look with the strategic placement of lights and darks in colors you love. We played in Photoshop a bit to help you imagine how that might look.
Designed by Ali Phillips from Arabesque Scissors, the completed mat is 36″ across.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
