Tutorial: Celebrate!! Mat and Coasters

Today Jackie Kunkel from Canton Village Quilt Works is sharing a very cool project with a technique using tulle. We love it and think you will too! After you've read through Jackie's tutorial, don't miss the fat quarter bundle giveaway at the bottom of the post!






Hi, I'm Jackie from Canton Village Quilt Works, here to share a pitcher mat and coaster set that I made using Fabri-Quilt’s Black and White fabric line as well as Marblehead Global Brights.



You will need:



1. Begin by cutting “wonky” strips form your black and white fabrics. Strip are no larger than 1.5" in width and are wonky. Subcut them into pieces about 12" in length.


2. Begin piecing strips together.



3. Continue this process until the fabric that you have is larger than 9.5" square.


4. Create a second piece in the same manner. Now you will have two pieces.

5. Take your bright fabrics and cut tiny little confetti like pieces in many different colors.





6. Place them on each piece of black and white pieced fabric until it is pleasing to your eye.


7. Take a glue pen and glue them in place, until both pieces are filled the way that you like it.

8. Cut two pieces of batting just slightly bigger than your pieced black and white unit.

9. Choose your backing fabric and also cut it about the same size of the batting.


10. Layer them as shown in the photo.

11. Cut your tulle to about the same size as your layered pieces and place it on top of the fabric.

12. Pin baste the 4 layers.


13. Quilt! I did a square spiral.



14. On one quilted piece, take a 9.5" ruler lay it down and cut around the edge for a cut piece of 9.5".





15. On the other quilted piece, take a 4" ruler and lay it down and cut out 4 coaster size pieces.




16. Bind all pieces. I used a different color of Marblehead Global Brights for each piece to make it more festive.


17. The VOILA! You can now sit down and relax with a cool, beverage!



I hope you enjoyed! I know you did!

Jackie
