Color Blocks Placemats + Napkins: Part Two

Last week, we talked about selecting and cutting the fabric. Your assignment this week will be to sew your napkins.

Each napkin is made by piecing a simple patchwork block, sewing it to a bold solid fabric back, and topstitching around the edges. Simple!

Elizabeth’s latest napkins made with Across the Pond and natural Essex.

This week’s PDF will fill you in on all the details.
