Freebie Friday: Cityscape Place Mats from Quilt-opedia

Happy Friday, everyone! And it truly is a happy one for us at SMP Craft: there’s been a definite springtime shift in the air. Dare I say it’s nearly time for dining al fresco again? Okay, maybe we’ve still got another few weeks to go. But with this FREE PROJECT from the newly released Quilt-opedia by Laura Jane Taylor, your patio table (or the stairs on your front stoop) will be prepared!

Quilt-opedia is the only quilting reference you’ll ever need. (You know it’s true because it’s right there on the cover!)

For both hand and machine quilting, Quilt-opedia uses clear step-by-step illustrations to walk you through the very beginnings of choosing materials, preparing and cutting fabric and the intermediate and advanced techniques like adding edgings and displaying your finished quilt. Useful tips are found throughout to help avoid common mistakes. A directory of quilt blocks contains loads of ideas for variations, joining methods, and embellishments. Plus, invaluable instructions are given for how to draft blocks to fit the preferred size measurements of any project, big or small.

Also included are 30 projects complete with full step-by-step instructions, fabric requirements, clear photos and diagrams, plus pages of full-size templates. Author Laura Jane Taylor has thought of everything for your quilting needs!
