As promised, this is a very quick project to make - so today I'm providing you with the final cutting and assembly instructions for your Windswept Table Mat.
Last week we went thru the process of creating pairs of identical 8-1/2" fabric strips, placed them right sides together and set them aside.
To complete this mat you will place your pair of fabric strips on your cutting mat.
You will place your 60 degree triangle ruler as close to one edge of the fabric pair as possible. The 8-1/2" line on your ruler should line up with the bottom edge of your fabric strip. Begin cutting your triangle pairs, flipping your ruler with each cut so that the left (or right) side of the ruler is always facing the edge you just cut out. You should have 5 pair of triangle sections cut from this pair of fabric strips.
Cutting is now complete for your table mat - so let's begin with the assembly process...
Keep out the 3 sets of triangle pairs that match nearly identical along the wide bottom borders and set the other 2 pair aside.
Sew 2 pairs of triangles. (right sides together) Be careful to line the striped section of the triangles together. It's a good idea to pin these.
Add another triangle to the left side of each pair.
Now you have 2 half-sections that are made up of 3 triangles.
#3 - Right sides together, pin the center section to make sure the 2 pieces match up properly. Sew the 2 halves together, press open and your Table Mat is completed.
You should have plenty of fabric left over to make a couple more of these table mats.
