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.
Our In-the-hoop Swirly Placemat is made in multiple hooping’s - joined easily in-the-hoop like a Jig-saw.
This is a design where you can really play with fabrics – I love the rainbow colors, but you could easily just use pick your 2 favourite colors to go with your table-ware – Black and White would be stunning!!, or go from dark to light. I also created the design without the inner quilting, which is perfect for patterned prints, like our Christmas Fabrics. I can’t wait to see what you create!!
- 5X7 Hoop 25cm by 25 cm – 10 by 10 inch
