These captivating little doilies feature gentle pastel colors that are perfect for the summer. They're also very easy and fast to make.
The finished size of the doilies is about 10" in diameter.
We used the Quilt Block Set IV embroidery designs for a large (5" x 7") hoop.
For the project we used the Equilateral 60 degrees Triangle by Darlene Zimmerman and cotton fabrics of different colors:
Cut several strips of different colors measuring 3" wide and the length of the width of the fabric. For the binding you'll need strips 2 1/2" wide and the length of the width of the fabric.
Sew the strips of 2 different colors in pairs lengthwise. Seam allowance 1/4". Press.
Place the new strips on your cutting table. Using the template triangle, cut the strips into 2-color triangles. You'll have 2 types of triangles - with white tops and pink bottoms, and pink tops and white bottoms.
On your working table place the triangles as shown:
Sew the triangles together with a seam allowance of 1/4".
Place the top on the polyester craft felt. Smooth with your hands and baste along the white border.
Embroider the Quilt Block Set IV designs in the center of each doily.
Now place the backing on a flat surface (table) face down. Spread your working piece over it.
Pin all three layers together with 1" pins and start quilting. We quilted along the lines of the embroidery and then made stippling all over the doilies.
After the quilting is finished, press the piece with heavy steam. Trim the edges. Finish the raw edges with the binding.
