The koru (Māori for "loop") is a spiral shape based on the shape of a new unfurling silver fern frond and symbolizing new life, growth, strength and peace. It is an integral symbol in Māori art, carving and tattoos.

Just in time for Waitangi Day (New Zealand Day) I’ve combined our beautiful Koru and Heart, to create our Koru Placemat.   I've stitched it in Greens in keeping with the Koru color, but you could use pinks/reds for a Valentines theme

The Placemat is made in seven hooping’s - joined easily in-the-hoop like a Jigsaw.

The 4x4 hoop creates a 9-inch Placemat – the 9x9 hoop creates a huge 20-inch Placemat

You get 5 hoop sizes in the one set – 4x4 5x7 6x10 8x8 9x9

To make matching Coasters simply stitch the last Heart by itself

Our photo shows the size comparison between the placemat made in a 4x4 hoop and an 8x8 hoop
