Com­plet­ing the Nap­kins

1. Pin and stitch two A squares right sides to­gether 1/4" from edges leav­ing a 3" open­ing on one side for turn­ing (Fig­ure 1).

2. Trim cor­ners at a di­ag­o­nal (Fig­ure 2). Turn right sides out, gen­tly push­ing cor­ners out.

4. Top­stitch 1/4" from edges all around to com­plete one nap­kin.

5. Re­peat all steps to make a se­cond nap­kin.

Com­plet­ing the Place Mats

1. Fold and press F strips wrong sides to­gether along length to make eight folded F strips.

2. To com­plete one place mat, se­lect one B square, four folded F strips and four G strips.

3. Pin and baste an F strip to op­po­site sides of B match­ing raw edges. Trim ex­cess at ends.

4. Fold both ends of the two re­main­ing folded F strips at a 45-de­gree an­gle re­fer­ring to Fig­ure 3a; press.

5. Baste the two an­gled F strips to top and bot­tom of the B-F unit, match­ing raw edges and over­lap­ping F side strips as shown in Fig­ure 3b.

6. Cen­ter and sew a G strip to each side of the B-F unit, mi­ter­ing cor­ners re­fer­ring to Mitered Bor­ders in­struc­tions on page 105, to com­plete the place mat top.

7. Layer, quilt and bind us­ing a C back­ing piece, 18" square bat­ting and re­main­der of black solid strips to com­plete one place mat re­fer­ring to Quilt­ing Ba­sics on page 124.
