In case you are new to the world of large applique designs, let me fill you in. A large applique design is one which needs 2 or more hoopings, with the joining completed as you stitch, in the hoop. The beauty of my large applique designs is you can quickly create a 3D Design much larger than your hoop.

Announcing the ‘Big Sister’ to our very popular Swirly Placemat – This is Swirly Placemat 2 – she has a bit more swirl, is available for 4x4 hoops, and with more hooping’s, makes a larger Placemat than the original.  A 4x4 hoop makes a 9-inch placemat, with the 9x9 hoop size a whopping 22-inch placemat

Swirly Placemat 2 - size comparison

Size comparison - small placemat 4x4 hoop, middle placemat 5x7 hoop, large placemat 9x9 hoop

Swirly Placemat 2 is made in multiple hooping’s - joined easily in-the-hoop like a Jigsaw.   

We have included 3 versions of this Placemat

Multi Fabric – multi thread colors

Multi Fabric One thread color

One Fabric - One thread color

Why the difference?   Apart from the visual differences, there is a time saving – the one fabric/one thread color version only stops your machine during construction, so is much quicker to stitch

Our design set includes Five hoop sizes





130X180 mm

6x10 Hoop

160x200 mm

8X8 Hoop

Barbara shared her kreative Swirly Placemat - using all her excess threads - and we all have them!!

I made one of these swirly mats using the idea of another member. I did mine on black fabric with white organza over the embroidery thread ends. Used black for quilting & edging so the back is completely black for a plain mat .
