Easy Christmas Tree Placemats In An Afternoon.
These cute Christmas tree blocks framed in a hexagon of colorful holiday prints, are fun to put together. A practical holiday project that can be fitted into the bustling festivities of the season. They’re perfect for your holiday table.
The Hexie Holiday Placemat can also be used as a trivet or potholder – simply add a layer of insulated batting. Use more traditional Christmas fabrics for a more festive look. If you are new to foundation paper piecing, this would be a great project to get you started. The foundation paper pieced tree is fairly quick to construct. It is a fun project to showcase a favourite fabric range.
Leafy florals and small prints for the hexagon need not be Christmas colors, and could be used a little longer after the season ends. The design is fat quarter friendly. Choose a variety of green small scale prints for the trees, and three coordinating prints in the same color family for the border.
Use fabrics that coordinate with your Christmas table for a stunning and fresh display. The placemats measure 11 inches across from one point to the opposite point. Suitable as a mug rug, the placemats make delightful holiday gifts.
