Quilted Table Mats with Rose Embroidery

The Rose Table Mats feature a unique floral shape that make them stand out. They are both a practical and beautiful decoration for your home, and make a great gift.

The embroidery designs used in this project are the Ivory Lace Rose, The Dark Lady Rose,and Catherine Rose for the large (5" x 7") hoop.

The finished size of each mat is about 16 1/2" in diameter.

You will need

  • embroidery thread (either polyester or rayon)
  • medium-weight cut-away stabilizer,
  • light-weight iron-on stabilizer or sewing interfacing,
  • light-colored cotton fabric for the central part with embroidery (about 14" x 14" for each mat),
  • fabric for the "frame", about 19" x 19" per mat,
  • fabric for the backing (we used the same fabric for the frame and for the backing),
  • batting,
  • quilting threads to match the fabrics,
  • graphic pencil, scissors and fabric glue (optional).

Emboridery

Stabilize the fabric for the central part with medium-weight cut-away stabilizer for embroidery. Print out the color card. Select embroidery threads according to the color card. Upload the design into the machine and embroider it.

Set the stitch-out aside.

Sewing the Quilt / Table Topper

Step One: Download the file with the template. To open and print the template, which is a PDF file, you will need Adobe Reader or a similar program. The program is free to download and install.

Step Two: Print out the template, cut it out and connect the parts for the template. You can use tape for this, or trace the parts of the template onto a large sheet of cardstock and cut it out again.

Step Three: Adhere the fabric for the top to the iron-on cut-away stabilizer or interfacing.

Lay the piece out with the stabilizer facing up. Position your template over the stabilizer and trace the template with a pencil.

Cut notches into the seam allowance from the edge to the inner line.
