Over and Under Placemats

My Over and Under Placemats were featured in Benartex's Modern by the Yard ezine! 

I fell in love with the textured look of these rich hues, from Benartex's Bali Fiesta collection. I ultimately chose to use just five of the colors, but you can see the range of tonals below. I love the summery look created by pairing these brights with a cool, crisp white solid.

These easy strip blocks create a woven look just based on orientation and placement within the placemat. The strip blocks are pieced slightly wonky to create a more modern look (and they're really fun to sew!). I bound each placemat in a combination of the fuchsia and that particular placemat's accent color--I really like the look of a multicolor binding! 

The pattern for these placemats is available for free in Issue #11 of Modern by the Yard (along with three additional projects). See the entire issue here.
