    Hi everyone. I am looking for a pattern. But I don't know if there is really a pattern for it or not.
    I want to make an oval placemat. Not just an ordinary oval placemat. The one I am looking for has 3 oval placemats sewn together. I believe this is how it is made.
    One piece lays on the table. The second and third ones are full ovals but only half is sewn onto the orginal oval one. With the second halves sewn together. I'm sure that doesnt make any sense at all...But it makes it to where you have 3 days worth of placemats. As you "flip" one half over for each of 3 days.
    Forgive me if you don't understand what I just wrote because, I am not sure I understand what I said. But I know what they look like. :) Thanks for any help.

    I think I know what you mean, but I haven't heard of the pattern for it. Good luck! Someone here is very likely to know!

    I think you are referring to the 4-sided placemat. You might do a google search for instructions.

    I think I've seen a similar technique used for a quilt (with a very thin batting).
